27. Mr. PRIMROSE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he will call the attention of the Lord Chancellor to the action of Mr. A. J. Hoole, who advocated non-compliance with the provisions of the National Insurance Act in a meeting at Shifnal, though as a magistrate he assists in the administration of the Law?
§ Mr. McKENNA
If my hon. Friend will furnish me with a report of the speech to which he takes exception, I will at once consider the matter.
§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
Will the right hon. Gentleman say in what respect this case of Mr. Hoole, if the hon. Member's statement is accurate—as I have no doubt it is—differs from that of the passive resisters, with whose action as magistrates the late Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman in 1907 declined to interfere?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
I think I should ask for notice of a question which would require me to enter into an elaborate statement.
