SIR: Mr Ness Edwards may be right when he suggests that 'present Parli- amentary procedure does not provide opportunity for discussion and scru- tiny of Governmental activity' in Wales, but would a 'Welsh Grand Committee' be an improve- ment? He says himself that 'the need to discuss regional legislation would hardly arise', and proposes that 'Grand Committee' debates should merely 'take note of Governmental activity, to avoid embarrassing the Government of the day'. The establishment of such a com- mittee without the power and the will to embarrass the Government as and when necessary would mean the founding of just one more talking- shop for a nation notoriously addicted to discussion. It would serve no other purpose than to give the illusion of SIR: I am no poet, but I do enjoy listening to the contests on the radio y mryson y Beirdd'. In these con- tests, cynghanedd is the thing, and the final item is always the submission of an englyn on a set subject. I have been interested, too, in the articles in your magazine from the pen of Huw Menai; particularly his mention of attempts to write englynion in English. Correspondence parity with the Scots, and perhaps satisfy those of our Nationalists who are more concerned with fancy than fact. It might also provide for those Welsh M Ps with uneasy consciences a chance to talk them out of their systems without having to do any- thing about them. The Nationalists and those who are impatient with the more atavistic side of Nationalism will agree in feel- ing that Mr Edwards' 'Committee' will be a waste of time. It will not deal with the problems of Wales, economic, social or national, it will merely talk about them. Sincerely, John Stuart Williams 3 Lon-y-Dail, Rhiwbina, Cardiff. I thought I'd have a go at produc- ing a few, and thinking you might be interested-here they are: PUBLIC LIBRARIES (particularly in Wales!) Buildings, with books now bulgin'-our stocks On stacks overflowin' The staffs are sufferin' No space to swing a cat in!
