HC Deb 09 March 1911 vol 22 c1739W

asked the President of the Board of Trade, if he possesses any record, or the data from which could be compiled any record, showing in how many cases since the passing of The Trade Unions Act, 1871, trades unions, when sued by their members for benefits or recognition of their rights, have successfully set up the defence that they were illegal associations?


The Board of Trade have no means of compiling a record of the cases to which the hon. Member refers.
