LORD RHONDDA AND MINERS. At the Ministry of Food on WTednes- day afternoon, Lord Rhondda received a deputation from the South Wales Miners' Federation, who complained of the shortage. of food and asked for better distribution and for immediate rationing in areas and not in districts. They also asked that meat, baoon, cheese, and jam should be rationed. Lord Rhondda said he agreed that rationing schemes should be carried out over large areas, and he was anxious to see a uniform scheme for South Wales. Local food committees had power to oommandeer margarine, and an order would shortly be issued giving them power to commanderr other foods. In any scheme of ration- ing all engaged in heavy manual work I would get special consideration. He hoped to be able to give the consumer a 50 per oent. higher food value in his rations than was the case in Germany. The miners thanked Lord Rhondda, and said the workers would give him all the support in their power.
