HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 c1549
4. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Minister of Labour what evidence he has to show that the present dock strike is Communist inspired

Mr. Isaacs

I would refer the hon. Member to the statement which I made on 20th April last.

Sir W. Smithers

is the Minister aware that last week I interviewed representatives of the dockers and that they told me that they were frightened to go back because of Communist victimisation of them if they wanted to do so? Is he also aware that there is a growing conviction that the real government of this country is by Transport House and not by Ministers? Will the right hon. Gentlemen govern or get out?
