However, due to the effective work done by us in this regard, considerable support has been created and we find ourselves in a position where we are unable to defer a decision in the way you suggest . . It was not often that an officer of the TGWU went against the advice of his general secretary, whether that was Bevin, Deakin, Cousins or Jones. It is an indication of Wright’s self-confidence that he backed his own judgement of the situation. It would be dangerous to ‘go to London’ and ask for favourable consideration until he had secured the backing of the inaugural ‘congress’ and thereby held a stronger hand.

Davies and Jack Brooks. Wright had invited all the Welsh Labour MPs but none turned up. The most enthusiastic was John Morris (Aberavon) who was prevented by family illness from attending. He nonetheless wrote: ‘I know how effective the Scots are as trade unionists in being able to demand audience from the Prime Minister down. I saw it as a Minister. 20 In opening the meeting Lloyd declared that there was ‘no desire or intention to break totally from the British TUC’. The thrust of Wright’s opening speech was that the time had come for a democratic body ‘representative of the whole of the movement in Wales’ to defend Wales against the social and economic neglect of recent years.

This was not through historical curiosity: he had been given a task that could make or break him. ’ He came to the conclusion that they had failed because they went to London. If we want something done in Wales the instinct is to buy a ticket to London and ask their permission. In Birmingham we don’t ask, we do it. If you ask London for money you won’t get it if they don’t like what you are doing. This was not entirely accurate, as previous attempts had foundered in Wales before reaching London, but Wright’s judgement went to the heart of the power relationships involved.
