Liberal-Labour' Associations are welcome to the wind-bags and nincompoops of the Trade i n;on Movement so long as the l.L.P. can claim the services of the truly pro- gressive elements. or.

Xùt many, perhaps, know that Mr. Williams is a Welshman and a native of Swansea. Most people who read know of Mr. Williams as an uncompromising champion of Labour, and in Port Talbot he will be remembered with grati- tude for the fight lie made recently against vested interests when the Taibaeh Co-op. was boycotted in its efforts to get flour.
