HC Deb 24 May 1911 vol 26 c270

May I ask the Prime Minister, with reference to the Bill to amend the Law relating to Trades Unions, if it is not a measure relating to the Osborne judgment? If so, is it not a Bill of sufficient importance to merit some explanation before it is presented to the House?


There are already, I believe, two Bills before the House dealing with this subject. I think it more convenient this Bill should be presented in the ordinary way. There will be ample opportunity for debating it on the Second Reading.

Bill "to amend the Law with respect to the objects and powers of Trade Unions," presented by Mr. CHURCHILL; supported by Mr. Sydney Buxton, Mr. Herbert Samuel, the Attorney-General, and the Solicitor-General; to be read a second time upon Tuesday next, and to be printed.
