HC Deb 14 August 1916 vol 85 c1426

I ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House to discuss a definite matter of urgent public importance—namely, "the continuance of the arrests of numbers of Irish migratory labourers in Scotland, contrary to the provisions of the Military Service Act and to the pledges given by members of His Majesty's Government, their ill-usage by the police, and the consequent dislocation of harvest work and the retarding of the construction of urgently needed munition factories."

The pleasure of the House having been signified, the Motion stood over, under Standing Order No. 10, until a quarter-past eight this evening.
