§ 79. Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether he will grant a day for the discussion of the circumstances which led to the recent railway strike?
§ Mr. ADAMSON
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers that question I desire to say that the railway servants would welcome a Debate at any time after the negotiations which are at present in progress.
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Arising out of that answer, I beg to give notice that at an early date I will call attention to the recent railway strike, and move:That this House is of opinion that such a strike was unjustified and was inimical to the best interests of labour, and calls upon the Government to at once introduce legislation rendering illegal any stoppage of the public services at the instance of trade union executives without due notice, and a ballot, of the members concerned.
