HC Deb 16 July 1912 vol 41 cc204-5

May I ask whether the Prime Minister is now in a position to make a statement with reference to the Dock Strike in London?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

In conjunction with my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade, I have been in communication with Lord Devonport and with Mr. Gosling and Mr. Orbell, with the result that interviews took place yesterday between them. The official record of the interviews appears in the Press to-day, and I have nothing at present to add to them, except that I understand that further interviews are likely to take place to-day.
