Hathren Davies presiding, a letter was rend from the Clerk of the Glamorgan County Council stat- ing that a meeting of the joint committee of the Glamorgan and Breconshire County Coun- cils and the Merthvr County Borough Council would be held on Monday, at Hengoed, to con- sider a proposal to alter the number of guar- dians representing the Gellygaer parish, and make any consequential alterations in the con- stitution of the Merthyr Doard of Guardians, and the Board were asked to send representa- tives to the joint committee. It was explained that the reason for the proposed change was that Gellygaer had been made into an urban district, and was, therefore, entitled to be treat- ed in the satne wav as Merthyr and Aberdare were. The Clerk gave the following particulars relating to the six parishes forming the Mer- thyr Tydfil UnionAberdare, estimated pop- ulation, 47,909; rateable value, 195,194; re- present&tiott, 15 Gellygaer: Estimated popu- lation, 28,802; 'rateable value, £141,803; re- presentation, 11, Merthyr: Estimated popu- lation, 78,365; rateable value, £275,807; re- presentation, 20.

Williams (rector of Dowlais) pointed out that according to the figures Aber- dare had one member for every 3,194 of the population, Merthyr one for every 3,918, and Gellygaer one for evorv 2,618. He formally moved that if an additional representation on the Board of Guardians be granted to Gelly- K^er. the Board was of opinion that there should be a proportionate and equitable in- crease in the representation of the parishes of Aberdare and Merthyr.—Mr. W. Harris se- conded.—Mr. Andrews moved an amendment that in view of the probable change in the law as affecting Boards of Guardians the board should allow matters to remain as at present. On a. division the original proposition was adop- ted by a large majority, and a committee was appointed to place the views of the Board be- fore the joint committee at Hengoed.
