THE CARDIFF RAILWAYS BILL. RESOLUTION BY THE PONTYPRIDD DISTRICT COUNCIL. Mr James Roberts, referred at Tuesday's meet- ing of the Pontypridd School Board-Mr P. Gowan in the chair-to the Cardiff Railways' Bill and its failure to pass the committee of the Upper House. He was sure every one present regretted the rejection of the Bill, especially in view of the great improvements which the scheme, if carried out, would effect, and the ad- vantages which would accure to the Council and the public alike. Immense unprovements would I ,have been effected in dealing with the Council's I roads, and especially those roads which crossed the canal; whilst the opening up of a new in- dustry and new neighbourhood on the east side of the Taff Valley would prove an incalculable boon. He certainly thought the Council should pass a resolution asking the promoters to per- severe with their scheme and bring it on again in the next session of Parliament, and pledging the Council to give every support they possibly could. This was a matter of great importance to the people of this neighbourhood. The Chairman quite agreed with Mr Roberts, but did not know whether the Council could pledge themselves to support a Bill next year, as it was possible they might desire some clauses inserted and would find they had prejudiced their case by passing a resolution now. Mr Roberts explained that his suggestion was to pass a resolution subject to the Council being granted clauses something similar to those al- ready gained in the late Bill. Mr R. L. PhilTips thought the matter should be left alone until the Bill came before Parlia- ment next year, for fear the Council might re- quire some clauses inserted. The Chairman: I think it is the duty of the Council and town to support- Mr Roberts: Unless the local authorities move in the matter and strengthen their hands, the probability is that we shall not have a railway at all. The Chairman: If there is no danger at all I am quite agreeable. In the course of a further discussion Mr Spic- kett remarked that the Council would not pre- judice their case in any way by passing a resolu- tion. Mr Roberts thereupon moved a resolution to the effect that the Council urged the promoters of the Cardiff Railway scheme to persevere in furthering their Bill next year; that the Coun- cil regretted as a body that the Bill did not carry through both Houses this year- and that the Council considered it a matter of so much importance to their district that they were pre- pared to encourage the promoters in their fur- ther efforts towards gaining sanction for their line. Mr T. B. Evans seconded, and the motion was carried nem. con.
