HC Deb 07 May 1929 vol 227 c2029

asked the Postmaster-General if his attention has been drawn to an appeal by the executive committee of the Union of Post Office Workers for funds for the support of six Labour party candidates published in "The Post" of the 13th; and, in view of Clause 5 of the Trades Disputes Act, will he say what action he proposes to take?


My attention has been drawn to the advertisement in "The Post" to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers. I am advised that the publication of the appeal in question, which is made in the name of the candidates themselves and not in that of the union, does not constitute an infringement of Clause 5 of the Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Act, 1927, and I do not propose to take any action.
