HC Deb 07 March 1910 vol 14 cc1140-1

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that a prolonged strike prevails in Dublin between the Brushmakers' Society and Messrs. Varian and Company of that city; whether any efforts have been made by his Department to bring the strike to a conclusion; and whether he can see his way to put the provisions of the Conciliation Act into force by offering conciliation or arbitration between the parties?


As the hon. Member is aware, the good offices of the Board of Trade are always at the service of the- parties to trade disputes if they desire to avail themselves of them Inquiries have been made into the circumstances of this particular case, and I am considering whether any action can usefully be taken by my Department in the matter.
