According to ifgures supplied at the time there was a mistake made in the calculation that the land would cost £ 1 a00 per acre. The landowner (Mr. Danic- Jenkins) was quite prepared to dispose oj the land at the same price as the managers j had bought land previously from him.— Mr. Richard Thomas said that in fairness to the owner of thc land, it wa.s a pity that they did not have the correct figures it the last meeting.

J. Powell said he objected to this question being brought Ùl1 now, especialiy as the Shop Hours Act posters were about. It seemed to him as if the Pontardawe ncople could not make up their minds.— The Eev." Evan Davies agreed that it was too late to re-open the question.—Mr. L. W. Francis said there should be a separate order for Pontardawe.—Mr. R,. A.
