The Welsh Commission. DISESTABLISHMENT ENQUIRY. NATIONALISTS AT WORK. INTERVIEWS WITH M.P.'S PRESENT. On Friday, the work of preparing the case for Disestablishment was carried a further and most important stage; a lalnge represen- htivecommittee being appointed, and this in irii choosing a strong Executive, to enter at once upon the task of collecting evidence for the Commission of Inquiry recently authorised by his Majesty the King. xhree meetings wer% held in Shrewsbury. The first was. a specially summoned assembly of the General Purposes Committee of the Welsh National Liberal Council; and the purpose of its gatherin was to give an opportunity for the Disesablkhment Committee of that Coun- ciu io meet the Welsh M.P.'s selected at the party meeting last week, and also to meet members of the Education Coanpaign Com- mittee. The object of the joint meeting was to reach an understanding as to how best might be discharged the duty of collecting evidence and submitting the case to the Commissioners. The Welsh National Liberal Council, in April last, upon the announcement that a Disestablishment Commission was to be ap- poined. resolved to initiate proceedings; and later on a special committee was appointed to hold weekly meetings. The committee has received communications from over a hun- dred organisations and from leading Noncon- formists and politicians expressing a wish o co-operate. The Welsh members of Parlia- ment had, of course, also been active and they proposed last week that the occasion of the Campaign Committee's meeting on Fri- day last at Shrewsbury should be utilised for discussing the position and resolving upon some course of united action.
NATIONAL COUNCIL ACTION. The General Purposes Committee of the National Council met first under the presi- dency of the Right Hon. D. Lloyd George; and there was a full attendance. A sugges- tion from the Parliamentaj-y party was first submitted, namely, that a joint committee should be established consisting of 16 repre- sentatives of the Welsh Council, 16 represen- tatives of the four chief Welsh Nonconformist denominations, and eight Welsh members. But upon this proposal being laid before them the representatives cf the Council pointed out that would be contrary to their consti- tution to agree to any proposal in that form. The constitution was emphatic that the National Council (being composed solely of representatives from constituency associa- tions) had imposed upon it the duty of calling conventions from time to time to consider questions affecting the general interest of Liberalism, "and to undertake such work in connection therewith as the convention might decide." Representatives of the Council, however, expressed their readiness to co-operate as far as possible, and to asso- ciate with themselves not only the Welsh M.P.'s but also representatives of the denom- inations as such. Their difficulty, however, lay in their constitution. A long discussion took place upon this point, Mr Lloyd George urging the necessity of prompt action and showing the undesira- bility of suoh delay as would be occasioned, especially as the holiday months are now at hand, and no convention could be held for several weeks. This view of the matter prevailed and in order to meet the difficulty the General Pur- poses Committee decided that the prelimin- ary steps already taken by their Disestablish- ment Committee should be continued, but that to meet lie wishes of the Welsh members thei,r committee should be enlarged. Finally the 14 members of the original Dis- establishment Committee were—it was agreed to—to be reinforced by 16 others (at least one more Council member to be taken from each county), eight Welsh M.P.'s, 16 representatives from the four chief denomina- tions, one from each of the Free Church Federations in Wales, and three from the Women's Liberal Associations. It was decided that a convention should be summoned for the second week in October, out meanwhile the committee just described should get to work. This concluded the special business of the General Purposcs Committee, but Upon the proposal of Mrs Richards, a reso- lution of congratulation to Sir D. Brvnmor Jones was passed with reference to his hav- ing had the honour of knighthood conferred upon him.
EDUCATION CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE. This body, which has financial responsi- bility for the "Revolt' schools, met at the Raven Hotel, Mr Herbert Roberts. M.P., taking the chair in the absence of Mr Lloyd George, who was engaged at the meeting of the ""e!h Council, held concurrently. Alder- man S. N. Jones, the treasurer, was present, and there was the largest gathering of mem- bers held since its first meetin.g. Among those present were those whose names have been most closely identified Mith the revolt movement—such men as Mr Haydn Jones and colleagues from Merionethshire; Messrs Hugh Lewis and Richard Jones from Meri- onethshire. There had been an impression that this was to be the last meeting of the committee, and that it was really only sum- moned for the purpose of being disbanded after closing its financial account. This im- pression. however, was very soon dissipated. It soon became evident that the stalwarts who have been in the front of the battle were not prepared to lay down their arms or to disband their forces while there remained any possi- bility of ^f u rthe r trouble over the question of education. This feeling was very pertinently and forcibly expressed by one of the County Council representatives, wlio said, "We are not going to disband until we see what the House of Lords will do with the Education Bill now before Parliament. If that Bill be not passed during the present Session we shall stiil be under the Act cf 1902, against which we have fought, and against which it may be necessary to fight again." This view was very generally adopted, and the meeting came to the unanimous decision that the time for disbanding was not yet. That deci- sion was soon to be justified. The Merioneth- shire delegates presented a report of the pI-e- sent jjosition of their emergency schools. Several of these had not yet been recognised by the Board of Education and until they w ere so recognised they could not be fonnally taken over by the County/Council, and the cost cf their maintenance must consequently be borne by the Campaign Committee. The Committee voted t506 towards the cost of providing new schoolrooms, in Montgomery- shire. It was stated that the committee also contemplated the erection of a schoolroom at Clatter, in L'langwnog, for which Mr David Davies, Llandinam. had kindly promised the necessaiw land, and to meet this case the Committee voted £ 250. The Chairman then pointed out that Mr Hugh Lewis had given his personal guarantee at the bank for an overdraft of £ 4,000 to en- able Montgomeryshire to fulfil its obligations in respect- of Council .schools at the time cf the County Council "strike" and the com- mittee readily agreed amidst general applause to refund the bank interest charged on the overdraft. Mr Lloyd George, in seconding this pro- posal, paid a very high compliment to the part taken bv Montgomeryshire in the fight. They had without a moment's hesitation fallen into line with the Campaign Com mittee and carried out its lecommendations, with the result (as he was now in a position to assure the committee) that the Tory Govern- ment of that day was at its wits' enfl what to do. He did not hesitate to say that the action of Montgomeryshire in this nrt&ter had had a determining effect upon the We Government in deciding to resign. There were, of course, other influences tending to that decision, but Montgomeryshire could certainly Claim the credit. of hastening the dissolution (loud applause).
TO PREPARE THE WELSH CASE. CHOICE OF WORKING COMMITTEE. During the afternoon the National Council Committee joined with the members of the Campaign Committee and uhe Welsh M.r.s in a third meeting, and with them were the representatives of the Welsh Congregational- ists who had been appointed at the annual meetings of that :body held during the week. Mr Llovd George, president of the National Coflincil, took the chair at the commencement of tlit1 pixxM?*? dings, and Q^monigst pre- sent were Sir Alfred homas, M.P. (chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Committee), 6sr D. Biynmor Jones. M.P., Mr Herbert Roberts, M.P., Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., Mr David Davies, M.P., vall. Ivor Herbert, M.P., Mr D. A. Thomas. M.P., Mr W. Jones, M.P., Mr Llewelyn Williams, M.P., Mr D. Lie infer Thomas, Mr D. Hugh Lewis, Mr All- good. Miss Gee, Mrs Richards, Mrs Freeman, Mr W. George, Mr W. G. Dodd, Alderman Raffan, Alderman Tutton, Rev j. Phillips, Mr Hugh Edwards, Mr Beriah Evans, Alder- man E. Thomas, Mir Evan Jones, J.P., Alder- man S. N. Jone.s, J.P., Mr T. H. Williams, Dr Oliver, Mr WiUiam Evans (Liverpool), Mr R. Roberts, Mr W. T. Lee, and othens. The Chairman again i-ef-erred to the neces- sity of prompt action. They should, he said, at once begin their work of getting together the evidence for Disestablishment, and, therefore, every little difficulty which might stand in their way should if possible be set aside in order to prevent loss of time. This was the general feeling of the meeting The question of the chairman being raised, it was pointed out that Mr D. A. Thomas was already chairman of the Committee of the Welsh Council; but that gentleman placed himself in the hands off the meeting, and ulti- mately Mr Herbert Roberts was chosen as chairman, with Mr Walter Hughes (secretary of the National Council) as secretary. Mr D. Davies, M.P., was appointed t-reasu rer. The full commitee will consist also of Mr D. A. Thomas, M.P., A,Itiei-,niaii E. Thomas, Alderman W. G. Dodd, Alderman Raffan, Mr D. S. Davies, J.P., Principal Edwards, Mr R. Roberts, J.P., Rev J. Towyn Jones, Rev Jas. Phillips, Mr Allgood, Mr H. Read, Miss Gee, Mis Freeman, Mr W. H. Brown, Newport; Mr Mcses Walters, Monmouthshire; Mr Egertcn Allen, Pemhrokeshire; Mr Lleufer Thomas, Carmarthenshire; Mr Hugh Ed- wards, Cardigan Mr W. T. Lee, Brecon Mr Jeffrey Jones, Radnor; Mr Richard Jones, J.P., Montgomeryshire; Mr Guthrie Jones, Merioneth Mr Jones, Pwllheli, Carnarvon- shire Mr Jones, chairman of Anglesey Liberal Associfation: Mr W. J. Summers, J.P. df Rossett, Flintshire; Alderman Tutton, Swansea; Mrs Richards, Wowen's Liberal Association; and Mr J. E. Powell, J.P., of ".rexham. Denbighshire. Eight members erf Parliament are to be added upon election by the Welsh Parliamentary Party. One mem- ber is to be added when chosen by each of the four Federations of Fiee Churches in Wales. Four members each will come from the. Welsh Congregationalists, the Method- ists, the Welsh Baptists, and the Welsh Wes- leyans. For the time being, until the cen- tral authority of three of the denominations meet, their representatives on the Education vmpaign Committee are invited to act, the Welsh Congregationalists having chosen their nominees—these being the Rev Eynon Lewis v- l-yncethin), the statistical secretary of the Union, the Rev J. Towyn Jones, Mr T. Mil- ward (Pentre), and Mr Beriah Evans.
THE EXECUTIVE. There being now a very large committee, the necessity of appointing an Executive was dwelt upon by several speakers, and it was decided to form a sub-committee of 16, who should be tüe xecutive body. Individual nominations were taken, and the following were elected :—.Ur Herbert Roberts, M.P., being chairman; the Welsh M.P.'s to elect two of their number; Principal Edwards (for the Baptists), Dr Hugh Jones (Wesleyan), Rev J. M. Jones (Calvinistic Methodists), Mr Beriah Evans (Congregationalists), Alderman J. E. Powell, Wrexham; Alderman Edward Thomas; Mr Lleufer Thomas, Swansea; Mr H. Reid, Cardiff; Alderman Raffan; Mr Hughes Jones, chairman of Anglesey Liberal Association Mr Hugh Edwards, Miss Gee; Mr Richard Jones. Caersws Mrs Freeman. Should any of the persons nominated be unable to act, the Executive was empowered to elect a subisttute.
THE QUESTION OF FUNDS. Mr Lloyd George then proposed that a special fund should be raised to meet the ex- penses that would inevitably be incurred. The case they had to get together was a case for a judge, and therefore it must be in a complete and proper form. This meant a great deal of work necessarily involving con- siderable expense. There had been a sugges- tion that the Campaign Committee fund might in some degree be available, and he thought that they might very well go to that committee and ask for a contribution. Alderman W. Raffan seconded the motion, and after scane discussion as to the bebt means of raising money, further reference being made to the Campaign Fund. Aldenunan S. N. Jones, as treasurer, said that the work of the Campaign Committee had not yet ended, and that. whilst entirely in sympathy, of course, with what was being proposed at the present meeting, he had to recognise that his powers were limited to these conferred by the convention which originated the Campaign Fund. It was neces- sary that they should fight the education fight to a finish (hear ,hear, and applause), and therefore he now bad to support a. proposal for a special fund. The resolution was unani- mously agreed to.
THE WORK OF THE COMMISSION. Sir D. Biynmor Jones, in reply to ques- tions gave a brief outline of the probable course of the work of the Commission, and made some valuable suggestions as. to the step^ which should be taken to meet the re- quirements ci the investigation. This concluded the business.
FIRST MEETING OF THE COMMISSION FIXED. e Welsh Disestablishment Commission will hold its first meeting c. Monday next, the 23rd inst., at the offices 01 the Commis- sion. Dean's-yard, Westminster.
MR LLOYD GEORGE'S ANNOUNCEMENT The statement of Mr Lloyd George that Welsh Disestablishment will occupy the most prominent place in the third Session of the present Parliament has created considerable ante est (says a well-informed London corres- pondent). In this case the President of the Be/ft."d of Trr.de no doubt prophesies because he knows. It has always been certain tiiat Welsh Disestablishment would be opposed in the course of the present Parliament., but the general idea, was that it would figure in the fourth rather than in the first Session.
