HC Deb 30 June 1902 vol 110 c309
Colonel DENNY (Kilmarnock Burghs)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the, Colonies whether he J8 aware that the strike of dock workers at Gibraltar is extending to other trades, and that acts of violence have already been committed; and whether he will telegraph to the Governor instructing him to adopt stringent measures to maintain order, and to issue a proclamation warning the strikers and others against using intimidation or violence.


I am aware of the facts stated in the Question, but the Governor, Sir George White, is fully alive to the importance of maintaining order, and I believe the steps he is taking will be found adequate.
