HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 cc1579-80W

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the fact that no prosecution has been, undertaken of those responsible for the issue of the labour manifesto on the War and the making of peace without submission to his Department, he will now withdraw the Regulation of the Defence of the Realm Act which has been contravened and found to be impossible of application in the face of organised defiance?


I have no reason to think that there will be any difficulty in enforcing the Regulation, and I have no intention of advising its withdrawal.
