WAR MOTOR AMBULANCES I COLLIERY OWNERS AND WORKMEN'S I JOINT SCHEME. A joint sub-committee of the South Wales Coalowners' Association and of the South Wales Miners' Federation have for some time past been con- sidering a scheme for the purpose of providing a number of motor ambu- lance cars for the use of the wounded in France. It has been suggested that the coalowners should contribute RI per 1,000 tons, which on last. year's output would realise about P,53,000 if all owners subscribe, and the workmen be asked to contribute 6d. per man per week for such a period as will enable them to subscribe an amount equal to the owners. The Coalowners' Association has al- ready recommended their members to contribute to the fund. An appeal to the royalty owners and associated col- liery owners has met with an en- couraging response, and the Miners' Federation now recommends a levy of 6d. a man per week and 3d. per boy per week for 16 weeks. It is proposed that this levy shall be deducted at the colliery offices, and that the deduction I shall not be made in any week if less I' than three days have been worked, and the moneys will he paid into a joint account of owners and workmen. It is hoped that in addition to the supply of motor ambulances the funds will be available to render assistance to the voluntary hospitals under the auspices of the St. John Ambulance Association. If at the end of the war any of the cars provided by this fund will be in a condition for further use, it is proposed that. they shall be re- tained for colliery ambulance work. The scheme will be laid before the Miners' Conference at Cardiff on the 31st inst.
