HC Deb 28 February 1918 vol 103 cc1577-8W

asked the Home Secretary what organisations were represented at the recent Labour and Socialist conference at Nottingham; what is the present membership of these organisations ; whether, in the election of delegates who attended at Nottingham, an opportunity for voting was given to those members of the organisations who are serving with the Colours, at Home or abroad; and whether he can state the total number of members of British trade unions at the present time and, approximately, the total number of wage-earners in the United Kingdom?


I have been asked to answer this. I am having inquiry made and will let the hon. Member have the information which he desires, so far as it is available.
