HC Deb 23 June 1921 vol 143 c1534
37. Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to a condition of legalised lawlessness now prevalent in the coal-mining areas of Great Britain, which condition is made possible by the Trades Disputes Act, 1906; and, for the welfare and safety of the community, will the Government repeal or amend the Act in question?


Nothing has so far occurred which would justify so drastic and provocative a remedy.


Where is this legalised lawlessness in Britain, and what is it?

Colonel NEWMAN

Is amending an Act a very extreme form of action?
