HC Deb 01 November 1911 vol 30 cc870-1

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether Mr. D. J. Shackleton, who attended the recent Trades Union Congress as a fraternal delegate, has made any report to the Home Office respecting the proceedings and resolutions passed at the Conference; and, if so, whether it is intended that such Report shall be laid upon the Table of the House?


No, Sir. Mr. Shackleton has not been directed to make any formal report to the Home Office on the proceedings and resolutions of the Congress. He attended the meetings of the Congress by the desire of my predecessor in order that he might be in a position, when any of the questions raised at the Congress are brought before the Department for consideration, to advise the Secretary of State as to the views of the workers.
