BARRY AND VALE OF GLAMORGAN COMPANIES. HALF-YEARLY MEETINGS. NEW STOCK TO BE ISSUED. QUESTION OF COMPETITION. The 34th half-yearly meeting of the Barry Railway Company was held on Friday at the offices of the company, Barry Dock, Lord Windsor (the chairman) presiding. Other directors present were Mr Archibald Hood, vice-chairiiian; MrF. L. Davie", Mr R. Forrest, Mr Rees Jones. and Mr T. Webb. In moving the adoption of the report of the directors and statement of account*, the Chair- man said the amount of unproductive capital un June 30th was £ 407,692, but since that date some of the works represented by that expendi- ture ha4. bet-i; brought into use. The dividend which the directors recommended to be paid was at the same rate as the divideud declared in the corresponding period last year, and 2 per cent. higher than was received six months ago. The REVENUE RECEIPTS showed an increase of S17,922, which was higher than the amount of receipts in any previous half-year by £15.:300. Although that was the case, the working expenses were still above the company's average rate. The revenue portion of the cost of restoring the deep water lock was provided for out of funds which had been liberated by reason of the adjustment of sundry traffic accounts, and it was shown by a diminution of the amounts standing to debit under the amount reserved for outstanding accounts in statement No. 13, page 7, of tbeaceounts. The branch connecting with the Rhymney Railway at Penrbos was opened, as anticipated, on the 1st of this month, and the preliminary steps had been taken for exercising the company's powers for joining the Brecon and Merthyr line in Monmouthshire. There were several large pits on the Brecon HUM Merthyr line either completed or very near completion, from which the output was expected to be considerable, and it was hoped that a large proportion of this output might come over the new branch to Barry. The transit shed, upon which there had been considerable expenditure, was now ready for the reception of goods, and the required bonds had been given to the Customs authorities. Every effort was being ma,i- to receive imports for warehousing, in order to obtain IMPORT TRADE to which they were confidently "looking, but which they had no chance of obtaining until adequate provision bad been made for it in the way of storage. The arrangements which came into operation on May 20 for the r aiming of passenger steamers to certain points on the Channel were working satisfactorily, and ap- peared to be increasingly appreciated by the public. The shipments of coal and coke for the last half-year were larger by 235,102 tons than those of the corresponding period of 1900. With regard to the Vaie of Glamorgan Railway and the Barry Company, the former railway being practically completed, the various matters outstanding between companies which bad been the subject or friendly disscussion for some time were receiving the very careful attention of the directors with a vi w to un early settlement. He should have addressed them at greater length if there bad been any point of policy which ap- peared to be new or which the shareholders had a right to receive some explanation of from the directors; but, as they were aware, he had on several occasions at these meetings, and the report of the directors had put before them the necessity which th-re was for additional capital expenditure, and lie had bad to explain that a very large proportion of this had hitherto been unproductive, the POLICY OF THE DIRECTORS was now to jealously inquire into, and guird against, anything like extravagant expenditure, to look closely after the enlargement of the company's undertakings, and to endeavour to make this large expenditure a matter of profit to the company at as early a date as possible. That, generally, was now their policy, and the board would very closely adhere to it, and net ask the shareholders to sanction anything in the nature of extravagance in capital expenditure. Mr A rchibald :>od,viec? chairtrian,insecond- ing the reception of the report and accounts, said the dividend was not so high as it had been, but comparing it with the dividends of other companies, be thought they stood very well, considering the amount of unproductive capital and the increased charges in the shape of wages, cost of all materials, &c. Whether they would ever reach the point they attained in tin es past he did not know he was not going to prophesy; but shareholders might rest assured that the directors were giving the matter their very best attention. l'he board were not oblivious to the remarks which had been made from time to time by shareholders, but were very much disposed to consider any suggestions, which they invited. With regard to the Vale of Glamorgan R til w)iy, hehappmed to be in the dual position of deputy-chairman of the Barry and chairman of the Vale of Glamoigan, and in some respects he was sorry to be in that position, but he should always ende ivour to hold the balance as fairly as be could, wit'! any little influence he might possess. He could not add to what Lord Windsor had so well said. It was a great comfort to them to have their noble chairman so regularly at their half yearly meetings. (Applause ) It gave them all all impetus to do whatever they pcssibly could to promote the welfare of their undertakings. If they had spent rather freely he hoped that there would be no cause for this complaint in the future. They were very desirous of cconomisu-g in every direction, and they were also endeavouring to watch the operations of some of their neighbours, and,, if possible, counteract them. DIVIDENDS Mr White, shareholder, Melksbam, said Mr Hood had congratubttod the shareholders that the dividends of the Barry Company compared favourably with those of other railways in the immediate neighbourho od. He must differ from Mr Hood, because Barry Ordinary Stock had been issued t" the shareholders at 2S0 on one occasion and 200 on another, whereas the stocks of the otbpr local railways had always been issued at pnr. Consequently the appaimt dividend of 7 per ont. represented to those pers ns who took stock at 280 a trifle over 2 per cent. per annum. He should like to inform Mr Hood that the shareholders in South Wales were beginning to fpd the competition their divi- dends were aiminisLn g, and a great many thought that their interests would be better sprved Ly an amalgamation, or combination, or by an agreement, than by the intense competition which had hitherto prevailed. (Hear, htar.) Mr Archibald Hood I am very gJari to hear the last observation of my friend. I don't think it will fail on the part of Barry to enter into an amalgamation oi all the different companies. I don't like to say more on that subject— (laughter) but rers-.nniiy it is a thii that I should very much like to Mr Wnite Would you like that idea t xpressed at other railway meetings f Mr Hood Yes, I think so. Mr David Duncan It was expressed at the Cardiff Railway Compacy's meeting a day or two ago. The Ccairmjin I think [ ought to state now that a new issue of capital will soon be made to theextmtof 1350,000, or something to tha-, amount, ou terms which will at a very early date bp submitted to you. Replying to Mr Henry Radcliffe, The General Mauag-r (Mr Richard Evans) said the cost of the LèW warehouse was nearly £ "0,00i). Mr Radcliffe asked what the direct ;s had i done towards tilling the warehouse. The General Manager said everything was being done, and he trusted that in a few months they would be able to show they had been suc- cessful. Mr Radcliffe: Have you made any definite arrangement yet with anybody,with any firms ? The General Manager I do not know that I would be right in saying definitely, but prac- tically, yes. The report and accounts were unanimously adopted. On the proposition of the Chairman, seconded by Mr T. Webb, a dividend on the Ordinary Stock was declared at the rate of 7 per cent. per annum. Acknowlpdging II. vote of thanks to the board, Lord Windsor said the directors were ex- tremely anxious to make the position of those referred to by Mr White as good as possible, and their attention was very seriously directed towards increasing the traffic in every depart- ment as far as possible. The meeting then closed.
Vale of Glamorgan Company. The half-yearly meeting of this company was held at the termination of the proceedings of the Barry Uompi >y. The report of the directors stated that "The award in the arbitration between the company and the contractors has Veen delivered. It directs the payment to the contractors of the sum of £ 29,716 4s 3d that the company shall pay the contractors' costs of the claim, and that the contractors shall pay to the company the costs of the counterclaim." In moving the adoption of the report and ac- counts, thp, Chairman (Mr Archibald Hood) said the award had not been given in such detail as they would have liked, and had left some matters to be settled between the Barry Com- pany and the Vale of Glamorgan Company. These were now in a fair way of being settled in a friendly manner, and until this was done they could not give any final pronouncement upon the condition of their affairs. Share- holders might be sure that the directors would do everything they possibly could to effect a fair and amicable settlement with their neigh- bours, who were more than their neighbours, the Barry Company. Mr Evan Thomas, director, seconded the, adoption of the report. Remarking that he was the only director of the Vale of Glamorgan Company who was not also a Barry director, he said there were various questions pending be- tween the two companies. There was to be a friendly suit in the High Courts in order to get a decision upon the arrangements which bad been entered into between the companies, and he wished it to be clearly understood that in this suit the shareholders of the Vale of Glam- organ would not lose one jot of their rights. His colleagues, although directors of the Barry Company, bad given loyal assistance, and they had been good enough to leave him to defend the interests of the Vale of Glamorgan as if the companies were absolutely separate. The matter to be decided was the interpretation of the agreement between the two companies, and the amounts concerned represented some- thing like from S55,000 to £ 60,000. He could assure shareholders that every possible trouble would be taken to secure fair treatment for the Vale of Glamorgan Company. Mr J. B. Ferrier, shareholder, said he had intended to ask some questions, but after what had been just said he refrained. The report and accounts were adopted, and a dividend at the rate of 3i per cent. per annum declared. There was no other business.

It was a truly sensational story which Mrs T Watts told to a South Wales reporter the other diy. Mrs Watts is the wife of the proprietor of the Channel View Restaurant, Redbrink-crescent, Barry Island, and here is her story Six years ago I removed from Hereford to this place, but very sown after I got here I began to feel altogether out of sorts. I got wone, and in the end was brought down by an attack of extreme nervous and general debility. I could not get rid of the feeling of lassitude and the desire to do nothing: Yet, although I felt so weary and exhausted, I could not sleep a all at night, aId it was torturing to lie there incapable of gettii.g a "ink of sleep. Some- times I could not sitep because cf shooting paius in my head. At other times it was due to nervous trouble. After the birth and death of my baby I < as worse than ever, and to my former ailments was aided a nasty pain iu the back. I could not summon a scrap of energy, and I had to send for a friend to do my household work. The least effort made me thoroughly exhausted, and when mount- ing the stairs I would have to sit d iwn half-way and rest People in Barry Dock, as they noticed my pale, sunken cheeks, said how quickly I was casting away.

MERTHYR-STREET FORWARD MOVEMENT HALL. SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY SERVICES. The anniversary services in connection with the Sunday School of the Merthyr-strpet For- ward Movement Hall took place last Sunday week and the three days following. On Sunday a scholars' procession took place, and anniversary songs were sung at different points, while in the afternoon there was a "scholars' ralley," under the presidency of Councillor Evan Jones, and at night an an- niversary song service, when the scholars took part with recitations, and the choir, under the conductorsbip of Mr Sutton, sang very effec- tively the different anniversary hymns. The Pastor gave an address to the children at this service. On Monday evening a miscellaneous enter- tainment was given, when Mr R. Mitchell, the secretary of the Sunday School, took the chair. Tuesday afternoon the scholars, teachers, and friends, to the number of 330, went in a special train to Gileston, where a most enjoyable time was spent. On Wednesd y evening a scholars' competi- tive meeting was held in the Hall, when Mr C. Williams (treasurer of the church) occupied the chair. Among the items in this meeting were prizes given for spelling, impromptu speeches, &c., &e. We are pleased to note that the Sunday School in this Centre is making rapid progress. The following figures speak for themselves: Average attendance during the year 1900, 100; average attendance six months ending June 30th, 1901, 219. Special attention is given to the organising of the school by the superintend- ent and secretaries, whose effortsin thisdirection are backed up by the devotion of the teachers. Proof of the marked success in the Sunday School is seen in that it has been found neces- sary to build six large classrooms and a child- ren's hall in addition to the present building. We are also glad to note that there is a large increase in the number of members in the church. Success will doubtless attend the workers, officers, and pastor in their labour in this crowded locality during the coming winter. The committee are busily engaged in arianging their programme for the winter sessiois, which promises to be full and attractive, to suit the large and cosmopolitan population surrounding the Hall. It is mission work in the true sense when people, whose disposition and feelings are in antagonism to religious denominations as a rule, are made to feel an increasing interest in the church in their midst.
BARRK TRADES & LABOUR COUNCIL SUMMER MEETING. A VOTE OF SYMPATHY. Mr R. Hughes occupied the chair at a meet- ing of the Barry Trades and Labour Council, held at the Glamorgan Restaurant, Barry Dock. on I hursday evening last week, when there was quite a summer attendance, there being but seven members present. THE LATE DISASTER. The agenda was a short one, and among the items was a motion for a vote of sympathy with the widows and families of the three men- trades' unionists, and members of societies represented on the Council—killed recently in the fire on board the s.s. Marianne.—The President spoke of the horrible nature of the deceased men's death, and said he hoped that, if even at the cost of so much human life, the fire would lead to the compulsory ventilation of the forepeak and the introduction of escape holes which could easily be made watertight. The disaster was a matter for sad reflection, and be proposed that they record their sym- pathy and condolence with the relatives.—This was briefly seconded by Mr C. Griffiths, and Mr Fred Walls (the secretary) remarked upon the Christian character and usefulness of the deceased, whereupon the President said the loss was all the greater on that account.—The motion was carried in silence, the members standing. NEW DELEGATES. Messrs T. Cook and W. J. Piper were elected delegates to the Council on behalf of the B.U.D.C. branch of the Navvies' Union and the Operative Bricklayers' Society respectively.
WHAT A CARDIFF MAN SAYS. What a Cardiff man says always interests Barry Dock people. There is so much in common between these towns that the happenings in one always awake a responsive chord in the hearts of the inhabitants of the other therefore, the statement of Mr James Chapman, who lives at 40. Angelina- street, Cardiff, which we print below, will have weight with Barry Dock people. He says :— For many yeare past I have been a martyr to cruel backaches, caused by my kidneys being out of order. These pains were often very severe, that I used to feel quite knocked up and unfit for work of any kind in fact, I got so low that some- times I hardly knew how to hold up at all. My kidney secretions troubled me very much, for they were often accompanied by a scalding sensation, and in the morning I would see a deep red sedi- ment. I tried everything I could think of to get cured, but nothing ever did me any good, I became low and dispirited, and began to think I should never get better. I continued in this state for some time, till one day I happened to hear of Doan's B^ck^che Kidney Pills, so I got some, and after I had taken some I noticed a great change in my health. In short, thanks to Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, I must say I am completely cured of the backache, and shall be glad to tell any who asks me what these wonderful pills have done for me." —(Signed) JAMES CHATMAN.

SEAMAN'S ADVENTULiE ON SHORE. A REVIEW OF THE PUBS. CHARGE OF ATTEMPTED ASSAULT AND ROBBERY. William Thomas Hetherington, a ship's carpenter belonging to the s.s. Praab, at pre- sent lying in the No. 2 Dock. at the local police-court on Monday prosecuted William Pawley, a Barry Dock boarding-house keeper, for attempted assault and robbery. Mr Alfred Jackson appeared to defend the. prisoner. Hetheringtcn's story was that last Thursday he met prisoner at Culley's Hotel, and, together, they visited nearly all the local hotels. They met at four o'clock, and it was nearly 10 o'clock when they decided to go the Island way. It was while on Barry Island that prosecutor felt defendant push up against him, and he said: "Let me have what you have got." Hether- ington had JE3 12s Old at the time, and said he should not have it. Prisoner then rifled him, putting both hands into his pockets, and then tried to choke him. Prosecutor tried to shout, but could only gurgle. The man, however, let go his hold on him, and, seeing a'policeman, prosecutor gave the prisoner in charge. Mr Jackson elicited from prosecutor the fact that he had that day visited every public-house in the district except one, and that he was not sober. Police-constable Shillum said that at that time and place he heard a scuffle and the noise made by Hetherington in his attempts to shout out. Going up, witness was asked to arrest Pawley, whereupon the latter said the charge was nonsense. The man was paid off last Saturday week, and had been staying with him. He had lent him money, and if he did not get him back to the ship so that he could "sign on and get an advance note he (Pawley) would be so much out of pocket. Mr Jackson reiterated Pawley's statement, and said that he had every opportunity of robbing Hetherington when his hands were in bis pocket, but he had not done so. The Bench dismissed the case.
CADOXTON ASSAULT CASE. PRISONER BEFORE THE MAGIS- TRATES. BACK-YARD WARFARE. A MONTH'S IMPRISONMENT. Bertha Davies was again brought before the magistrates—Mr D. Davies and Col Thornlby- at the local police-court on Monday charged with wounding with intent Sarah Jenkins, alias Stetfall, of 105, Barry-road, Cadoxton.—Mr Alf. Jackson represented prosecutrix. Particulars have already been published of the quarrel, and the case has been previously adjourned in order to give prosecutrix time to recover from her wounds. Briefly, the parties are neighbours, and on Bank Holiday last, prosecutrix going into her back-yard, found that her vegetable marrows bad been trampled upon. She saw prisoner in her yard with her husband. The man Davies threw a stone at Stetfall, followed by his wife throwing a basin and jng, which struck Mrs Stetfall down. At this stage of the proceedings prosecutrix, whose head was bandaged, fainted, and bad to carried out of court. When she recovered the case was resumed. Emily Hearn (a neighbour's child) and Sarah Jenkins (daughter of prosecutrix) each gave evidence, as did Dr Wilde, of the nature of the wounds received. The magistrates, after consideration, sent prisoner to gaol for a moneh.
Tradeswoman's Death by Drowning. THE CORONER'S INQUIRY. AN OPEN VERDICT. On Friday afternoon last, at the Central Police- station, Barry Dock, Mr E. Ll. Reece, deputy coroner, held an inquiry into the death of Rose Guy, whose body was found on Wednesday morning in last week in the Old Harbour. EVIDENCE OF IDENTIFICATION. Wm Guy, a retired master mariner, living at 52, Redbrink-crescent, Barry Island, identified the body in the mortuary as that of his daughter, Rosina Guy, 37 years of age, who, in conjunction with her sister, had kept a tobacconists' shop at No. 4, Thompson-street, Barry Dock. Witness said he was with deceased on Tuesday evening from 7 30 to 8.30 o'clock, and left her in the shop attending to customer". Deceased had lived on Barry Island, and usually went home at night, closing the shop between 11 o'clock and midnight. Deceased was healthy, and of a cheerful disposition. About the time she would pass the Old Harbour it would have been high tide. Wm Henry Davies and Frederick Huelin spoke to having seen deceased that evening, and noting nothing unusual in her manner. WHEN THE TIDE WAS LOW. Henry Watkins, of 5, Dunraven-street, Barry, said he was going towards the Island at 5*50 on Wednesday morning on his way to work. The tide was out, and as he passed he saw a body lying on the mud at the end of the pitching, about 10 or 15 yards from the road' He at once gave informa- tion to the police. Police-constable Albert Savage said he was called at 6.15, and had the body conveyed to the public mortuary. On it, when examined, he found a purse containing f,2 17s 3d, and there were rings on the fingers. The Coroner Did you find any letters ?-No, air. THE MEDICAL EVIDENCE. Dr E. Treharne said he had examined the body that morning in the mortuary. On the forehead were two bruises, which were not severe ones. They were the only marks of violence on the body, but would not be sufficient to cause unconscious- ness. They were probably caused by a fall before death. He believed death to be due to drowning.

PEOPLE WITH A WEAKNESS, Many novel causes are put forward for making an ass of oneself, but it is not often a man comes for- ward to uphold himself in his erratic ways. Geo. Searle, a man who lives in Phyllis-street, Barry Island, did this. Charged with drunk and dis- orderly conduct, Searle said he was keeping holi- day, and it would not be a holiday without they enjoyed themselves. He did not remember a man in blue ordering him to move on. This was not Searle's first appearance by any means, and he was ordered to pay 20s and costs, or go to gaol for a period.—Two women, named Thomas and Mary Ann Eastwood, were fined 5s each for fighting in the street, and Richard Fiswick, 2s 6d, for com- mitting a nuisance.—John Collins is a brake-driver and, indulging in language with another brake- driver, subjects himself to the law's penaly, 5s.— Two brothers named John and Jethro Batt, engaged in the truly fraternal occupation of quar- relling together and making a street scene, were ordered to appear before the court, as was also John White for making use of bad language in Holmes-street, Cadoxton, last Sunday morning— Mary Ann Shade and John Ainsley were each con- victed of using obscene language in Cadoxton last Sunday when people were going to church. They were fined 10s each.—Kate Taylor, well known at the court, made her 39th appearance. The last time she promised to go back to Ireland, but now said that she could not go and leave her dear children. This Bench tickler not having effect, she was sent down for 14 days without the option of a fine.—Three men, who did not make an appearance, but had paid fiues of 7s 6,1, were Alf Paterson, Wm Keener, and Geo Williams. WHEN WE WERE BOYS TOGETHER. Txo little boys, of the young man type, were fined 2s 6d each for playing football in Glamorgan- street, Barry, last Friday week. SEAMEN SING THE MOURNFULLEST nITTY. Three seamen, Wm Hake, James Ray, and Nemo Litiper, were severely charged with drunk and dis- orderly conduct at Penarth. They were singing about We will go out to the war," and were locked up for it. While they were launching forth the harmonious strains one of them received a bat on the head.

The month has been a successful one, fair weather has been experienced, and mine-laying work in the Channel has not been interfered with, as was the case last year. During the month the camp has proved a great attraction to the people of Barry, and everything was done by the commanding officer (Major J. A. Hughes) for the entertainment of visitors.

ST AN DREW'S PARISH COUNCIL. EASTBROOK FOOTPATH QUESTION. Mr Jo^n Isaac presided at a meeting of the St Andrew's Parish Council at the National Schools, Dinas Powis, on Monday evening, when a letter was read from the clerk of the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Coun- cil in reference to the footpath from the Swan Ion, Eastbrook, to the Sully road, stating, in reply to the Council, that they had appointed a committee to go into the matter.—Mr Cram asked that the letter sent to the Llandaff Council be read. From this it appeared that the Llandaff and Dinas Pow is Rural District Council were asked to approach the Barry Railway Company, asking for "permission to cross it.-Mr Naldrett took exception to this, adding We don't ask for charity we ask for justice."—The Clerk said the letter was written, and was submitted to General Lee.—The Chair- man It had been modified a little; I don't know with what object; but, at any rate, we have a reply, and they say they have appointed a committee to inquire into the matter.—The Clerk next read the following letter from Mr D. R. Morgan :— To the Chairman and Members of the St A ndreio's Parish Council. Gentlemen,—In the interests of tne residents of Eastbrook, and all concerned in the maintenance of the public right over the Eastbrook to Cogan path, it is my duty to direct your attention to the follow- ing facts :-At the Parish Council meeting on the 10th June, 1901, Mr Councillor Naldrett moved, and Mr Councillor H. Barrett seconded, that the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council be asked to re-open th3 obstructed footpath which leads from the Swan L n, Easthrook, across the Barry Railway, and over a part of a field belonging to the Wenvoe Estate, then over two fields in the occupation of Mr Driscoll, owned by the Bute, through Green Says, into the Sully-road, near Mr Chiver's residence, then to Cogan, as a result of which a letter was read at the next meeting of the Llaudaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council from your Parish Council requesting the District Council to ask the Barry Railway Company for permission to cress their railway, in order to enable the public to use this pathway, and General Lee supported this application. As I haspened to be well informed in this matter, and knew that all the essential facts were most decidedly in favour of the public, I ventured to express my regret at having occasion to differ from General Lee, that I was sui prised at the course adopted by the gallant General, and that he was not justified in giving away the rights of the people by asking for permission to cross the railway, and by offering to pay a nominal sum of 5s yearly for that purpose, as the public claimed a right to cross the railway. I appealed to the District Council to ask the Barry Railway Company to erect stiles on each side of the railway to enable the public to cross the line and use the pathway, but in consequence of General Lee's opposition and influence my motion was lost by 10 votes to 5. I immediately again approached the Council, directing their attention to the tact that I had received that morning from Mr Council- lor H. Naldrett a memorial signed by a very large number of residents testifying that the pathway was andoubtedly a public right of way, and I contended that it was the duty of the Council not to allow the matter to drop, but to appoint a committee and make further inquiries. This motion was seconded by the Vicar of Llanishen, and carried. Since then numerous attempts have been made by interested persons to prejudice the District Council in this matter. A fresh com- mittee has been appointed to deal with this question, and those members, viz., Mr William Emerson and myself-the only members who had spoken in favour of the public right-were not nominated on this subsequent committee. I beg, therefoie, to ask you to exercise your influence over General Lee and induce the gallant General to act in future consistently with his election promises.— I am, gentlemen, your obedient servant, D. R. MORGAN, Dinas Powis, Aug. 8th, 1901. Mr Naldrett remarked that a great mistake had been made by the Rural District Council in not putting local men on the committee. Then the responsibility would have been their own, and they could bring the matter to an issue. He had bad a conversation with Mr T. R. Thompson on the subject, and that gentle- man acknowledged that this was a public path, and that he bad known it to be so for many years. The parleying seemed to be not with the Barry Company directors, whom he believed to be an honourable body of men, but with the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council.—Mr Cram said that when some time ago someone was summoned Mr T. R. Thomp- son, who was on the Barry Bench, acquitted him of tresspass because he thought it was a case of ignorance. Usage was not necessarily right of way.—The matter then dropped, it being decided to leave it in abeyance until a reply is received from the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council.
