HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1276
MR. CLYNES (Manchester, N.E.)

To ask the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the reports of disturbance and racial ill-feeling arising from a large body of British workmen being exported to Hamburg to replace men involved in a dispute there; whether he can promise any legislation to prevent such exportations or use any existing means to call the attention of those British subjects who have organised those exportations to the injury they are causing to the country's reputation and international friendship.

(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman.) Yes, Sir, as I have already said, I am aware of the incidents to which the hon. Member calls my attention; but I am unable to see what legislative remedy the Government, or any other Government, could provide for such a state of things.
