I EBBW VALE TRIBUNAL. An important statement on the limitation of the powers of recruiting tribunals with regard to men in con- trolled works was made at the Ebbw Vale Tribunal on Friday, Councillor W. Cox presiding, Captain C. Latham (the ohief dilution officer) made it clear that under the new regulations the tribunal were not the competent authority to deal with any cases from a controlled establishment, although they could, of course, still deal with cases on domestic grounds. He quite appreciated the point raised by the tribunal, and he assured them that he was doing all in his power to get men similar to those named by the tri- bunal in the Army as quickly as possible. Mr J. Gale: Then I take it, for example, that a man who comes here to work as a blast furnacemen, even if he has only about three manths' experience, cannot be touched ? Captain Latham: Not unless you can prove conclusively that he has 1 come here to shirk the Army. Mr Geo Davies said personally he was not disposed to go through any more Ebbw Vale Company eases. We are making ourselves look ridiculous before the publio." Captain Latham: The tribunal, of course, override 118 every time on the domestic appeal. The tribunal, who thanked Captain' Latham for his atteadanee, decided that they could not touch the com- pany cases in future, and that the whole facts be plaoed before the War Office, Army Couneil,, md the Miaistry of Munitions.
