PORTH PUPIL TEACHERS' CENTRE The Architect's Remuneration. The Rhondda School Board on Monday- Mr T. Bevan presiding—had before them the following two paragraphs from the Building Committee's report: "We have had under our consideration a com- munication from the Science and Art Depart- ment, in which it is stated that the Inspector reports that in view of the inadequate arrange- ments at present existing in the Pupal Teachers* School it is very desirable that the proposed premises should be completed as soon as possible As the matter is under the consideration of the Board, we make no recommendation." "'We submit for the consideration of the Board sn account for E108 18s 3d sent in by Mr Rees, the architect, for preparing plans, etc., etc., of the Porth Pupil Teachers' School, and which were subsequently abandoned." Nothing was said with reference, to the first paragraph, but the second one gave rise to a very long discussion. Mr Jenkins anal other members thought it was a pity for such a large sum to be wasted, and the question was raised as to whether the plans could not be used for any future site that the Board might negotiate for. Mr Rees could hold out no hopes of that, inasmuch as these plans were of a proposed building adapted to the peculiarities of this particular site. Mr Jenkins said that he was hoping Mr Rees's labours in preparing these plans could be regarded as so much stock. The Chairman hinted that possibly Mr Rces could see his way clear to forego his claim. To this Mr Rees replied that he could not possibly do so, and went on to enumerate the work which he did for the Board at an actual loss to him- self. The Vice-chairman: I move that the bill be paid. The work has been done. and it is nob Mr Rees's fault that the school has not been built. Mr D. R. Jones seconded, and the motion was agreed to.
