WESTERN MINERS MEET. -1I 1 INTERESTING ADDRESS ON HOUSING AT SWANSEA. The monthly meeting of the Western District Miners' Association was held on Saturday at Swansea. Mr. Caradog Jones (Pontardulais) presided over 24 delegates, representing 6,000 men, and was supported by Mr. W. E. Morgan (agent). There was a. general discussion on the question of Labour representation in Par- liament and on. local bodies, and it was stated that a scheme was in course of preparation by the M.F.G.B., and would probably be forthcoming in the course of a few days. j Mr. Edgar Chappie (secretary of the South Wales Garden Cities and Town Planning Association) attended, and gave an address on pit-head baths. He de- clared there was a shortage of from 20,000 to 25,000 cottages in South Wales, and attributed the scarcity partiy to the fact' that South Wales had developed more rapidly than any other industrial area in the kingdom, with the result that ail the available CAPITAL HAD GONE in works and collieries instead of houses. Regarding pit-head baths, he stated that at a cost of I ld. per week a collier would bo able to have hot water douches at the close of his day's work, which would not only be more healthy for himself, hut would also relieve the woman's work in the home. It was unanimously decided to become affiliated to Mr. Chappie' s Association, and Mr. W. H. Davie's (Penclawdd) was appointed on the council of that body.
