...operators will be organised into a trade union—indeed, I am told they already are—and I would like to know if a ship of 30,000 tons is to be held up because the wireless operators are on strike?

Orders of the Day — Acquisition of Land (Assessment of Compensation) Bill. (11 Jul 1919)

...questions which we have to face at the present time. The two Members who have spoken have spoken often before with the object of discrediting the Government.

I am perfectly prepared to meet them any time they like as regards the scheme laid down in the Amendment which they wish to put...

Orders of the Day — Coal Output.: Statement by Sir a. Geddes'. (14 Jul 1919)

Mr William Brace: No, this is simply the out-of-work fund for South Wales alone. The-strike or lock-out arrangement is an entirely different one. The Committee, therefore, will realise that if our members could have been given that opportunity to produce which they were anxious to have we should not have paid out in 1917 £41,000 and in 1918 £43,000. Why were they idle? These are the replies. One hundred and...

Coal Mines Bill. (17 Jul 1919)

...did not introduce this Bill, though they had suspended the Eleven o'clock Rule to do so. I presume that the reason was that they had made a proposal to the miners that they should agree not to strike during the next three months, and they would carry out the undertaking given by Mr. Justice Sankey's Commission, and the output should not be reduced, and that they would not do certain...

Orders of the Day — Police Bill. (18 Jul 1919)

Mr Edward Shortt: the chief officer of the district, the object being this. A man may continue belonging to a union for two reasons; one, he may be connected with it in such a way that he is bound to come out on strike from sympathy; and secondly, he may belong to a union because it has benefits. He may be insured under the Insurance Act, and things of that description, and you have to decide whether or...

We all know that on the territorial side, an...
