I CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE TRADE UNIONISTS OF EAST CARMARTHEN. I To the Editor, "Llais Llafur." In the division on the Labour Party's amendment to the King's Adrees, the Rev. J. Towyn Jones voted with the Government against the amendment, which means that the hon. member ap- proves of bringing out the soldiers (during a strike) under the control of an unsympathetic government influenced mainly by mine-owners, to suppress the workers who are striking for better con- ditions, with no inquiry being made into their actions. I wonder what would the Sout-h Wales trade Unionists say if their leaders were deported as the Ll? nicii Government kid- napped the South African Trade Union leaders? In this case, would Mr Jones desire no inquiry to be made ? If the electors of East Carmarthen allow his action to p'i<<s without a protest, it is quite possible the rev. member will rut in a. similar manner again should a strike occur here. If not, why not? Probably the majority of the electors of East Carmarthen w-e not aware, of how the hon. member voted on this iin portant and far reaching question. Yours, etc R. H. To the Editor, "Llais Llafur." Sir.—In reading the list of Liberals who voted against the Labour Party's amend- ment to the King's Address, two names, those of the Rev. Towyn Jones, M.P., and Mr Sidney Robinson, M.P., appear. At the meeting recently held at Aber- crave both these gentlemen claimed to re- present the workers. Now, I aak the workers who voted for these two gentle- men what they think of their represen- tatives now ? They claimed at Abercrave to be champions of liberty and tlie bitter enemies of tyranny and oppression Do not the workers see that in voting ag3inst Trades Unionism as these gentlemen have done, they are simply upholding the tra- dition of the Liberal Party ? The whole history of Liberalism from the early days of Trade Unionism to the present South African affair has been one c-f oppression and opposition to all claims of the workers. It will always be so The Liberal party is financed by the capitalists and must therefore represent the views of the capitalists. Too Rev. Towyn Jones believes in the brotherhood of man (on Sunday), and on Monday puts his beliefs into practice by voting for the arresting and >deportmg of the work ers' representa- tives. The rev. gentleman grows elo- quent about the tyranny of the Church in Wales, but he givee his whole-hearted support to the tyranny of the capitalist Government of which he is a supporter. I sincerely hope when these gentlemen visit their constituencies the workers will ask them to explain their actions. Perh?os some champion of Liberalism will explain! I remain, yourr tuly, Abercrave.
