Other plants are being built for secondary industries which, say government planners, will prevent a relapse to the area" category of before the war. But underlying all the concern and doubt which business and labor alike espress for the present and future is the current condition of the coal trade, on which the economy of South "Wales is based. The great exnort trade in solid fuels, nearlv tons in 1938, is at m standstill with reduced output frcm the mines being absorbed by the domestic market. MUST REVIVE INDUSTRY Officials of both the Swansea and Cardiff Chambers of Commerce contend that unless the export coal trade is resumed on a large scale or some substitute trade is found, their ports and the smaller but highlv-developed harbors of Newport. 'Barry and Port Talbot will suffer gradual atrophy. All the South Wales ports made Barnes for themselves during During the war his wage scale rose from 40th in the country to the top six in industry. But the government's call for recruits to the coal mines goes unheeded. So far the nrospect of nationalization, long a" goal of mine union leaders, seems to exert no encouraging influence on the average potential mine worker despite its promise of increased'mechanization and better working and living conditions.
