HAIRDRESSERS AND I "TAWE LODGE." LOCAL SECRETARY AMPLI- I FIES LETTER. UNION ASK FOR "SUITABLE I CONDITIONS. A "Daily Post" representative had a chat I with Mr. T. l), Harries, secretary of the I Swansea Hairdressers' Union, with reference to the statements -nadc, Rt a recent meeting of the Tawe Lodge Visiting Committee apropos of the conditions under which the. shaving of the inmates at the Workhouse was proposed to be undertaken by a mem- ber of the Hairdressers' Union asked to per- form the work temporarily in view of the iu- disposition of the house barber, Mr. Harries alleging that it was inadvisable to send a man there in view of the frightfully insani- tary and unhygienic conditions," which, he said, prevailed. Mr.-Harries has received from the clerk to the Guardians a letter soliciting a further explanation of the contents of his intimation to that body, which Mr. Abe Freedman, chairman of the committee, described as a reflection upon the institution. Regarding this Mr. Harries told our re- presentative that it was a great pity that his letter was ta.ken in that light, since no I reflection whatsoever was intended. The conditions he hac;. deEcribed did prevail, and he was prepared at any time to substantiate his statements, either at a. meeting of the Guardians, or on a public platform, but could not do so by letter, and added that his description of conditions which prevailed, when members of the association had been asked on previous occasions to perform such work. was mild. No Other Objection." Our representative enquired as to whether any objection was taken to performing the work provided suitable conditions prevailed, and Mr. Harries replied emphatically that there was absolutely no objection other than that he had mentioned to undertaking what was a public service, but, like the general public, members of the Union were amongst the ratepayers and demanded from a hygienic (he went on so far as to say humanitarian) paint of view that suitable conditions were made for the undertaking of the work. They had a perfect right to it and meant to have that right. "Of course." said Mr. Harries, "we do not expect such facilities as are provided at our own saloons. Far from it, but we do expect, and justly so. to see at least things made in some way hygienic. I have shaved men there on previous occasions who were suffering from facial outbreaks of a. most contagious character and under conditions which I do not care to mention." Mr. Harries has been instructed to act. on behalf of his Union, several members of which, he says, are prepared to corroborate his words.
