A St David's Election Cry.


A St David's Election Cry. FREE WATER SUPPLY FOR RHODIAD At the last meeting of the Haverfordwest District Council the Clerk read a petition signed by twentv-one inhabitants of Rhodiad in reference to a water supply for the locality. It was reported," said the petitioners, that Mr Martin had said that only in the summer months there was a scarcity of water. This is a false statement. We have no well of our own, and we depend on the neighbouring farms for a supply of water. Mr Martin is well aware of this fact. We hope you as an honourable Council will grant our request, otherwise we shall be obliged to apply to the Local Government Board." Mr W G James: The honourable Council will now call upon Mr Martin (laughter). Mr J C Bowen Do we include Mr Martin in the honourable Council (laughter). Mr Martin explained that he had never said there was an ample supply of water at Rhodiad. The place stood very much in need of a supply, but the question was who was to provide a supply. As regarded the present supply there was ample water at the well that had been slJpplying the district for years.—Mr J W Davies endorsed Mr Martin's remarks. Mr Henry Evans We must go to the coun- try on this matter (cheers). Mr Martin There is no urgency whatever just now. Mr W G James: This is a matter to be deferred. There will be a parish council election in St David's soon, and the well question will provide a good election cry. We will afterwards have a concrete result before us. Mr J C Bowen It will make a splendid election cry (laughter). The matter was ultimately deferred.
