§ SIR CHARLES DILKE
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, having regard to the number of women workers affected by trade disputes and to the special nature of their position in the labour market, it is intended to place any woman on the proposed Royal Commission as a member.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
Perhaps the right hon. Baronet will allow me to give him an answer similar to that which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Waterford. If the Commission on Trade Disputes is of the larger type, undoubtedly I think there ought to be some distinct representative of the women workers of the country upon it. Of course, if it is of the smaller type, the idea of representation falls through.
§ MR. WINSTON CHURCHILL
had a question on the Paper on the same subject, but in view of the answer of the right hon. Gentleman given above did not press it.
