LLANDRINDOD F.C.C. AND TROOPS. Sir,—I shall be obliged if you will allow me to make an explanation regarding my statement that there were only four persons present at the Free Church Council meeting, when the letter was read. I said that I had been informed that there was only four persons present. The clerk (Mr D. C. Davies) said that Mr H. D. Phillips was at the meeting, and that he could tell us. Mr H. D. Phillips on being appealed to, said that lie thought there would be fifteen or sixteen there. I at once accepted Mr Phillips's figures. I did not object to the letter because of the num- ber present, but to what I thought was an un- warrantable reflection on the men who were bil- leted in this town, last winter. I refer to the following, which is a part of the letter, "The Free Church Council asked the Urban District Council to take steps to secure the earlier closing of licens- ed houses, in the event of more troops coming to Llandrindod Wells." At the same meeting of the Free Church Coun- cil I believe I am correct in stating the F.O.C. decided to send a letter to the officer commanding the R.A.M.C., complimenting him on the good behaviour of the men. Then, if the men were so well behaved, why does the F.C.C. want the licensed houses closed earlier in case any more troops come here again ? I may say that all men under the rank of sergeant, and men who may be on duty, have to be in their billets by 9.30 p.m., with the exception of the summer months. I am sure everyone in the town will agree that taking' into consideration the large body of men who have been billeted here, that their conduct has been re- markably good, and far better than we could have possibly expected. There- fore, I moved that the letter should be laid on the table. As a Free Ch ureli man myself, I felt sorry to take this course, but I I considered it was in the interests of the town I to do so.
