New Inn, Cwmerfin. Licensee and owner, Mrs. Margaret James (now Williams), rateable value S3 12s.: Committee Agent's valuation for compensation, £69 13s. 6d. Superintendent Phillips, in reply to Mr. A. J. Hughes. said the New Inn was about a mile from the Trefeirig Inn and was a nice little house, but in the wrong place in present conditions. There were twelve miners only in the place and about forty-five altogether on the hills. His opinion was that there no demand for the house.-The Licensee said her first husband, who died a year ago, paid £277 for the unexpired term of the lease and she was able to earn a living by the trade. The ground rent was £ 2. Mr. David Davies, called by Mr. Hughes, put the annual value of the house, licensed, at £8 10s., and about £2 unlicensed, no one in the district wanting such a house.The claim was £171 8s 6d. and the Committee allowed £53 10s. compensation.
