I Pensions Scheme. I APPROYED BY THE CORPORATION. At the special meeting of the Borough Council on Wednesday evening, the Mayor (Aid. D. James Davies), who pre- sided, said the meeting had been con- vened to consider the scheme for the ap- pointment of a local Pensions Committee. It was hoped by holding that special meeting to have the scheme confirmed by the Ministry for Pensions so that it would come into operation on October 1st. They authorised the Town Clerk to make a settlement. There was some opposition put in by the Llanelly and District Trades Association who were not satisfied with what the Corporation proposed, viz., that two members of the committee should be appointed direct by the Trades'Associa- tion and the Corporation to appoint at least two Labour representatives. The Town Oierk reported that he saw- Sir Samuel Rose, as directed, and talked the matter over with him. He (Mr. Spowart) found in the long run that there was not apparently a. very great gap to be bridged over. I he proposals of the Corporation were as stated bv the .Si ayor—f.vo members to be appointed by the Trades Association, one member by the W omen's Co-operative Guild, two by the local branch of the Silver Bit. Badge League, two by the Soldiers and Sailors Associat ion, one by the Soldiers and Sailors Help Society, and 13 by the Borough Council. The difficulties were with regard to the Labour nominations. He found that the officials for technical purposes would regard four members as a fifth of 22, in the same way as they would regard it as a fifth of 21, and it occurred to him to suggest that it would over the position if the Corporation in- creased the number of the Trades Associ- ation's representatives from two to three. That had the effect of not only being em- bodied but also of being scheduled in the scheme because the Women's Guild was regarded as a Labour organization, and that really made the four up. The Mayor: It means that we have conceded one more member to the Trades Association ? The Town Clerk That is so; it is a sort of splitting the difference between the Association and the Corporation. Coun. Evan Roberts: Have you re- ceived any applications from Joint Asso- ciations for representation ? The Town Cierk Yes, from the Associ- ation administering Messrs. Richard Thomas and Co.' s Relief fund, and I pointed out to the Company's secretary on the phone at once what a difficult I position it was because they could not be said to either represent Labour or to re- present capital. It was unanimously decided to approve of the amended scheme.
