Councillor Idris Davies welcomed the delegates in a forceful speech, in which he dealt chiefly with the Nottingham Labour Conference, stating he was glad of the unanimous votes given at this conference in favour of the resolu- tions on Education, Ministry of Health, Secret Diplomacy, Housing, etc. He rejoiced at the masterful way in which Labour was tackling the questions of social and industrial reconstruction. Mr. D. Rees then dealt with the or- ganising of the agricultural labourers of Brecon and Radnor, and appealed for the co-operation of the Brecon Labour Party. A sub-committee was formed as a result of this to aid Mr. Rees in his work. The chief work of the meeting was the appointing of officers and execu- tive committee, and the drafting of rules and constitution. The following were elected officers for the ejisuing. year:—President, Councillor Idris Davies; vice-presidents, Messrs. James Howells and Howard Lewis treasurer, Mr. W. J. Beavan, Brecon; financial secretary, G. Danaher; general secre- tary, LIew. K. Morgan. Tlieee officers, together with the following, were ap- pointed on the executive committee: Messrs. J. Brush, W. Williams. G. Coleman, nd Williams, Cefn; and Miss E. M. King and Miss Minnie Palister. A scheme was suggested to provide the necessary finance, and a committee was appointed to draft it and submit same to the local bodies for approval. The question of Labour representation for the division secured the approval of all the delegates, and a strong desire to fight the seat at the next election was evinced. The matter was put down for discussion I't. the next meeting, which will be held soon, and the secre- tary was instructed to call the atten- tion of all the affiliated bodies to this urgent question. The next general weting will be held at Brecon on 16th March.
