'õ. H." states that the "Group" also failed to get his. attendance, he is labouring under a delu- sion, for Coun. Griffiths did attend the 'Group" meeting, and explained his attitude, then leaving the "Group" to decido whether he was still to be recognised as a member. The result we know to bo excommunication. I and more of your readers would like to know when the "Group" are going to excom- municate themselves, or when are they going to be called to account by the Merthyr I.L.P., considering that they have demolished the main plank in the Labour party's educational policy in secular education. So much for "J. H." Now to deal with the letter of "A Socialist." Before dealing with his statements, I should like him to realise that the question at issue is the attitute of the "Group" and Councillor Griffiths on the education question, and not my opinions. The greater portion of "A Social- ist's" letter has been treated in my reply to "J. H. except my opinions, which I will gladly give to "A Socialist" at some future date, but I will give him a little information with recard to the so-called Romanists' meet- ing. and the "second promisa" that was given there. I happened to be present att that meeting, and know what pa..od there, and there was no "second promise" made. "A Socalist" W3' not th-^ro; consequently he has to take his evidence second or third hand. And as regards the pledcro-bound narty tolerating hrm in their ranks, I refer "A Socialist" to the latter portion of my reply to his confrere. But tber-3 is one point, in his letter which k in har- mony with my opinion on the education ques- tion, i.e.. "popularr control," but until "popu- lIar" control resolves itself into something bet- ter than is manifested at prep?nt, I say leave the voluntary schools alone, for it is apparent to any tyro on th's nn^-tion that if the volun- titry tchools were handed over to our Council, they would cimply utilise them in the same manner as their own, and thus have more sub- jects to use their proselytising influence upon. No Catholic or Ana-lican could tolerate such an idea, with any decree of complacency for a single moment, Therefore, until the State says you "must" or shall," instead of "may," I say—bf» just. Whether the Catholics are amfons for the education of their children is outside the question—though they are quite as anxious as any other body—for it is a duty de- volving upon the community and not an altruistic principle — to educate every child in its area. for the purpose of self-preservation, which "A Socialist" should be well aware of; therefore, I hope that. b, will be more rele- vant in hi,5 Dr-xt letter, and oblige — Vours etc J.
