HC Deb 10 March 1924 vol 170 cc1907-8

asked the Prime Minister if the Government proposes to take any action to secure peace in vital industries which are now in such a state of unrest as to seriously threaten the welfare of the community?

59. Sir K. WOOD

asked the Prime Minister whether he has any proposals to make to the House whereby industrial disputes may be more readily settled by arbitration?

61. Sir L. LYLE

asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to introduce any legislation either modifying or delaying strike action or lock-outs?


The Government is keeping in closest touch with all these industrial troubles. It does not propose to introduce legislation nor to handle each one in the same way. It will use its judgment to secure the maximum possible consideration from both sides for national interests.
