HC Deb 15 March 1916 vol 80 c2090

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been directed to the fact that the steamship services between Belfast and Heysham, Fleetwood, and Liverpool have been suspended in consequence of labour disputes; and whether, in view of the damage to national interests entailed by this disorganisation of traffic as well as the serious inconvenience and loss to the general public, he will state what steps he has taken, or intends to take, to put into operation the powers he possesses to end the dispute and bring about a resumption of traffic?


I am afraid I cannot add to the reply which I gave yesterday to a question on this subject by the hon. Member for Derby.
