To Save the Boroughs. ACTION BY MR. LLEWELYN I AYILLIAMS. I I The interesting suggestion is ma de by I the London Correspondent of the Mail that it may be possible, after all, to save the Carmarthen Boroughs from extinc- tion. He writes:—Among members of the Welsh party general support appears to be forthcoming for the suggestion that they should go fully into the redistribu- tion scheme and formulate what demands they think might be conceded by Parlia- ment. There has been a tendency to re- gard the question as closed, but the re- port of the Boundary Commissioners is purely tentative, and from other parts of the country amendments are already pouring in to increase county represent- ation and to save the old boroughs. One is glad to know that Sir Francis Edwards hats to-day tabled an amendment with the object of saving Radnorshire as a separ- ate seat. Mr. Llewelyn AYilliams will at once present a similar amendment deal- ing with the retention of Carmarthen Boroughs, or at least insisting that the whole county of Carmarthen could retain three seats. No doubt other Welsh mem- bers will table amendments to meet the case of their own counties, but the Welsli party will be urged to limit its demands to Radnorshire and Ca rmart'hen shire, in which cases they have an excellent chance of success, especially as Carmarthenshire is only just beneath the qualification for I three seats.
