HC Deb 14 February 1924 vol 169 cc1001-2
50. Mr. PENNY

asked the Prime; Minister whether, in view of the fact that six of the Members of his Government have resigned from the Socialistische Arbeiter-Internationale, he will inform the House whether all official connection has been severed with that body?


Members of the Government belong to no body of this name: but I have nothing to add to the answer given by my right hon. Friend in reply to a Private Notice question by the hon. Member for South Kensington on Tuesday.


Is it correct, as has been stated in the Press, that this international organisation aims at achieving its ends by promoting what is called a "class struggle," and is it correct that the Labour Party is affiliated to that organization?


The Minister does not, control that body.
