HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 c1287
45. Mr. CLOUGH

asked the Prime Minister if, during the Recess, he will arrange for the compilation and issue of regular official statements explaining the causes and object s of any case of industrial unrest of primary importance, so that the public may appreciate what are the facts at issue and be able to criticise each development from a well-informed standpoint?

Lieut.-Colonel GILMOUR

I have been asked to reply to this question. It is the practice of the Ministry of Labour to issue official statements about industrial disputes where this course is considered to be desirable, and this practice will be continued during the Recess,
