The Welsh Parliamentary Party. WHO W'll.r, BE THE NEW CHAIRMAN? The London corespondent of the West- ern Mail" writes:- Now that the elections are over, and the Welsh Parliamentary party is complete once more, speculation is proceeding as to who will succeed Sir Alfred Thomas as Chairman of that party. Three names are a. c mentioned as quasi-official nominees, i.e., Sir Francis Edwards, Bart., Sir Herbert Roberts, Hart., and Sir David Brynmor Jones. With regard to the last-named, however, many interested people feel that the hon. and learned member is not likely to con- sent to formal nomination, much less to election. The rumour referred to is based in part upon the success that Sir David achieved when acting as Chairman of Grand Committee, which is a position second only to the Chairmanship of the House, and which is practically a Deputy-Speakership. Against the aforesaid rumour is the belief that, should a re-arrangement of the organi- sation of the House take place, Sir David's habitually judicial demeanour would mark him as one likely to take a higher position, and one that might be interfered with by the keen partisanship essential to a chair- man of a party. As to the other two hon. members, the shrewdness and geniality of Sir F. Edwards, and the urbanity and patience of Sir Her- ebrt Roberts, make them ernial favourites. The only thing is that Sir Herbert might prefer to retain, and the party might wish him to retain, the office of one of the party Whips, in which he has done such good service. There is, however, a strong section of the WTelsh members, especially including the younger members, who are said to be deter- mined to make an effort to secure the elec- tion of Mr. Ellis Griffith as chairman. The outspoken attitude of the hon. and learned member for Anglesey in the past, particularly in favour of a more acute Nationalist policy for WTales, has won for him considerable admiration amongst those who have not accepted, without murmuring, the policy of being content with what the Iv Government has given in promises. There- fore, the Oliver Twists of the party are looking for their leader towards the north- west corner of the Principality.
