HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 c56

(by Private Notice): I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received any communications from Dublin requesting his Department to appoint an arbitrator to settle the dispute between the Master Bakers' Association and their employés; if so, will he-say when the arbitrator will proceed to Dublin; if he will proceed immediately so as to prevent the threatened strike of bakers which would bring ruin and starvation to the working classes of the city; if he is aware that the strike is threatend to take place this week if the question in dispute is not settled by arbitration?


The Chief Industrial Commissioner is in communication with the parties to the dispute with a view to the appointment of an arbitrator.
