HC Deb 22 February 1917 vol 90 cc1476-7W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that an organising trade union meeting convened by the National Amalgamated Union of Shop Assistants, Warehousemen, and Clerks, in Glasgow on Friday, the 9th February, was raided by twenty policemen; whether this was done under instructions from the military authorities, and, if so, for what reason it was done; whether any arrests were made; and, in view of the statements made locally that the raid was effected by collusion between the employers and the military authorities, whether inquiry will be made?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave yesterday to the hon. Members for the Elland Division and the Tradeston Division of Glasgow.
