Farmers and the War. Breconshire Agricultural Committee. FARMERS' INTEREST AT APPEAL TRIBUNAL. A meeting of the Breconshire War Agricultural Committee was held at the Shire Hall, Brecon, on Friday, when there were present Messrs. Owen Price (chairman), W. S. Miller, Morgan Morgan, J. Edwards, J. L. Davies, T. Morgan, H. W. Richards, David Williams, Walter Wil- liams, H. F. W. Harries ( clerk to the County Council) and D. J. Thomas (county .agricultural organiser). A letter from the Board of Agriculture invited the committee's consideration of a resolution of the Welsh Agricultural Council in favour of some steps being taken to ensure that the claims of agriculturists and other persons who should be exempted from military service in the interests of agriculture should be properly considered by ap- peal tribunals. Mr Harries stated that, as clerk of the County Council and clerk of the County Appeal Tribunal, lie had received from the Board of Agriculture an instruction that a representative of the Board would attend all the tribunal meetings in the in- terests of farmers. He believed Mr Owen Price was the representative of the Board of Agriculture and would attend probably every Tribunal meet- ing, except when cases relating to the Brecon Rural district, where he was chairman of the Local Tribunal, were being considered. He did not know who would act in those cases. The chairman said he had been appointed by the Board of Agriculture, who had asked him to nominate someone to take his place when lie could not attend or act. It was his intention to resign the chairmanship of the Local Tribunal, but, of course, he could not take part in the cases which lie had already heard. Mr Harries I understand you have submitted the name of Mr Mervyn Davies? The Chairman Yes. I refused to act at first, but they have sent me my appointment and asked me to act for them. Provision of Seed Potatoes. I Letters were read showing that arrangements had been made by the Carmarthenshire War Ag- ricultura.1 Committee and the Somersetshire County Council for the supply of selected seed potatoes at as near as possible cost prices, in the latter case the interests of small-holders being kept particularly in view. Members were of the opinion that most people in Breconshire looked after themselves very well ;n this respect. Mr Harries observed that there were a large number of co-operative societies in the county through which supplies might be ob- tained. Mr Miller I think that should be our answer. No action was taken. Swine Fever Restrictions. Cambridgeshire War Agricultural Committee: invited support of a resolution to the effect that the only way to increase the quantity of pigs in the country would be to abolish the restrictions in relation to county boundaries, to open all markets without police licences, and to make the affected area a defined circle with the actual spot of out- break as the centre.. Mr Harries thought the adoption of the county boundary was a wide question, as swine fever was very prevalent in some parts of the country. Mr Miller I move that the letter lie on the table. Agreed. Exportation of Cattle Feeding Stuffs. Warwickshire and Glamorganshire War Agri- cultural Committees forwarded resolutions in fav- our of prohibition of the export of cattle feeding stuffs during the war, but the latter made an ex- ccption in favour of our Allies. Mr Walter Williams thought this proposal might be supported, though he was surprised to hear that there was any exportation. The chairman was also inclined to support the proposal, but said he thought it would not mean very much, as there was very little going away. The committee decided to support the move- ment.
