The members present were Mr Gwilym Evans (in the chair), Lord Emlyn, Mr J S Tregon- ing, Iscoed, Ferryside; Rev W Thomas, Whitland together with the Hon W N Bruce, assistant commissioner, and Mr Thomas Jones, clerk, Llan- dovery. Mr J Glyn Thomas, Llangennech, was absent owing to indisposition. The committee sat several hours, and the various questions brought forward were lengthily discussed. Arising out of the minutes was the question of charities, and after considerable discussion it was decided to make inq-nii ies with the object of introducing two schemes, one bearing upon the main educational scheme anl the other upon minor charities, both schemes to run, as far as possible, concurrently. The question of the sites of the various colleges for the county was discussed at some length, and the Chairman submitted a rough scheme indicating the sites where he deemed it advisable the schools should be established. This was criticised by the other members with some animation, and it was evident that opinions varied considerably as to the centres which should have priority. The scheme was not finally adopted, but, after slight modifica- tions, it was deferred for furthur consideration at the next meeting. The constitution of the county governing body and the school governing bodies (there being several of the latter in the county) were discussed, and practically agreed upon The clerk was also instructed to submit particulars of the rateable value, population, and area of the various districts. The advisability of recommending the county council to set in motion the Technical Instruction Act was introduced, and received cordial support from the members. Mr Tregoning undertook to bring the matter forward at the next committee meeting, and to express his views on the question of technical and agricultural instruction generally. Tnis was practically th6 whole of the business transacted.
