School for Mentally Defectives. I MERTHYR'S LEAD TO SOUTH WALES. I Mejthyr Education Committee on Wednesday considered a proposal to enter into negotiations with the Housing Committet, for the purchase for. £3,600 of Gwaunfarren House and the ad- joining land for the purpose of establishing a school for mentally deficient children. The adoption of the suggestion was moved by Mr. L. M. Francis and seconded by Alderman Charles Griffiths; whilst Mr. H. M. Lloyd, seconded by Mr. Gomer Thomas, submitted an amendment that the scheme should not be entertained, and that as an alternative the authority should con- sider the advisability of providing for mentally defectives by amalgamation with other authori- tie, Mr. David Da vies uttered a vigorous pro- tect against tho course embodied in the amend- Invent. He was astounded that members should quibble about an expenditure of a few thousand pounds when such an outlay would mean that the afflicted children of the borough could thus be saved from the workhouse. Mr. L. M. Jones, associating himself with the protest, said money was no consideration when the future of the children could be ensured. Mr. Rhys Elias (director of education) stated that the available accommodation in the country was for 15,000 children, whereas there were actually 30,000 in* need of treatment. On a division nine voted for the amendment and ten for the motion—the Labour Party being all included in the la tter number.
