Gaol on June 22iid that year. The protest was contained in a resolution which read: "That in the opinion of this council Christopher Morgan, Hendy, Pontardulais. now serving his fourth sentence of imprisonment at Cardiff Gaol, and having spent nearly two years in prison for liis, loyal adherence to his completions as a C.O. should not be forced to suffer further imprison- ment. We petition the Home Secretary to grant his immediate release on the ground that lie has already suffered the full penalty of the law, and that it is extremely unjust and con- trary to the spirit of English law to ('ompd him. to serve three or fom- times for the same offence." The rest of the evening was spent in discus- sing the details of organisation for the May-Day Demonstration in Merthyr, and in arranging the time-tables for the processions, the events at Cyfarthfa Park, and the Eisteddfod at the v iii d i(-.ki.tl4)n ,o far Itink in the evening.
