SHOULD SEE THEM Coun Richards added that lie never refused to see an applicant for a position under the authority because he thought members should decide their votes not entirely on information given them on paper but after talking to the candidates and forming their own impressions of them Could they have a method -which would make it possible to stop canvassing? He believed it would only drive the canvassing underground More relations and friends of candidates went round when canvassing was banned With regard to the suggested stipulation on years of service Coun Richards said should choose the man or woman who is best suited for the job in the interests of the children and not in the interests of the The letter was referred to the committee of

to the appoint of headteachers were discussed at "lie monthly meeting of the Education committee on Wednesday letter was read enclosing resolutions used by the teachers One urged that Canvassing directly or indirectly be rbidden and that any candidate by on behalf of whom canvassing took place should be disqualified years- MINIMUM The teachers asked also that applications should be considered only from certificated teachers with a minimum period of service of 25 years in the case of men and 20 years in that of women It was pointed out that rules of a similar nature had been adopted by the Swansea education authority in connection with appointments to headships t'oun Brin James said he was glad the teachers had considered the question and he welcomed the move particularly with regard to canvassing He believed the time had come when they should end that nonsense because it was very humiliating for these people to come round the doors of members of the committee He moved that the letter be considered CANNOT Conn David Jennings I suppose we are all in agreement about canvassing The question of limiting such appointments to people with 20 or 25 service however I cannot agree to This ihould either be referred to a committee or considered at some future time Coun Daniel Rees suggested that copies of the letter be circularised among the members for discussion at the next meeting Aid Elias Davies said the authority had tried on several occasions to put a stop to canvassing with the result that it had simply become intensified They had had other people coming to them apart from the candidates themselves In 1923 or 1924 they had tried to forbid canvassing and bad found matters were worse AND RELATIONS I had vicars and deacons and churchwardens coming to us on

Industrial Council at Swansea on Wednesday that with regard to holiday bonuses for tinplate industry employees during August stop-week the employers had made an offer which would be considered by the side of the Council A final decision would be taken at a special meeting of the men to he convened at an early date If the offer proves acceptable 22000 tinplaters will have holiday money during August stop week meeting lasted two hours and it is understood that the side agreed to recommend to their members a bonus up to a maximum of £2 per week It will be recalled that for jearr past the representatives have put the claim on the agenda for the annual conferences with the employers but the latter always turned it down until a year ago when a promise was made that the matter would be considered The reason for not granting the concession in the past was the very heavy cost it would entail to the industry It is understood that during the meeting the fact that Messrs Richard Thomas and Co and the Metal Box Co granted a bonus to their employees on the occasion of the last stop week was tioned and it is believed that this influenced the side of the committee in agreeing to recommend an offer of a bonus The decision is a very important one to the Welsh tinplate industry An application by female employees for increased wages was referred to the London committee DOCTOR

Griffiths Mr James Griffiths asked the Minister of Health in the House of Commons on Thursday what steps lie proposed to take to deal with the problem of the high rate of mortality from tuberculosis in Wales wliat progress was being made with proposals for rural re-housing and whether those plans could be expedited in view of the gravity of the problem Sir Kingsley Wood Although the rate of mortality from tuberculosis in Wales is higher than in England and Wales as a whole I may remind the lion member that there has been a substantial decline the rate in Wales as well as in the est of the country this decline amounting to 38 per cent on the figures for 1935 as compared with 1910 SLUM CLEARANCE In Wales the arrangements for the treatment of tuberculosis are made by the AVelsli National Memorial Association on behalf of the AVelsli county and county borough councils and a survey of the services provided by the association is at present being undertaken by one of the medical officers of the Welsh Board of Health I am awaiting the results of this survey before considering what further measures are required As regards the second part of the question proceeded Sir Kingsley the position is that 4300 houses are included in the slum clearance programmes of the Welsh rural authorities and that 1339 replacement houses have been approved of which 700 have been completed A further 386 houses have been approved for the abatement of overcrowding and for general needs My department is continually watching the progress of the clearance programme with a view to expediting it where possible' NEW SCHOOLS NEEDED Mr Griffiths in a question to the President of the Board of Education referred to large number of school buildings that were unsuitable and should be and said that in the rural areas children had to walk long distances to school and during inclement weather had no facilities for drying their clothes Further there were no facilities for securing a substantial
