HC Deb 18 November 1920 vol 134 cc2060-1
33. Mr. C. WHITE

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the present munitions' strike and the Orders issued thereon by the Government threatens to bring about a stoppage of the railways of the South and West of Ireland, the Government intend to take no steps to maintain the economic life of the country, seeing that this decision involves the abdication of one of the primary functions of civilised government?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to the question asked on this subject by the hon. Member for Seaham on the 11th instant.
