County Council Affairs YSTRADGYNLAIS FREE CHURCH COUNCIL AND SUNDAY TRADING The Breconshire County Council met at the Shire Hall, Brecon, en Friday, the chair ma,n (Lord Glanusk, C.B., D.S.O.) presiding. The Standing Joint Commitee reported that they had given careful attention to the petition of the <-Cwmtwreh and Ystrr. dgynlais Free Church Council respecting Sunday trading in their district, but as the present law ap- peared ineffective, they recommend that the County Council should pass a re- solution urging the Government to intro- duce and pass further prohibitive legis- lation in the matter. On the motion of the chairman Lord Glanusk) a resolution in accordance with the recommendation of the committee was passed.. The General Purposes Committee re- ported that they could not recommend that the closing order under the Shops Act (1912) should be made at Brynmawr. There was not a majority of two-thirds of the whole of th3 trades in favour of the order. It was unanimously resolved that the order under the Wild Birds' Protection Act should be continued in the County. Mr. A. Gwynne Vaughan (Builth) in moving it, stated that as a result of the order, ho believed there was an increase in the king fisher and the gold finches in the country. The Chairman (Lord Glanusk) gave notice that he would move at the next meet-in" of the Council that the stand- ing orders be altered so as to exclude the Press from the meetings of their committees. He did this, as he thought, entirely in the interests of county busi- ness and he hoped they would carefully consider the matter.
