§ 45. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Prime Minister whether he has considered the case presented to him by the deputation representing the Trades Union Congress that the time has arrived for the restoration of the pre-1926 trade union rights, the repeal of the Trade Disputes and Trade Union Act, 1927, and the restoration to the Union of Post Office Workers of their pre-1926 rights, and the restoration of all rights taken from the organised people by the Act of 1927; and is he in a position to make a statement on this matter, and indicate what action it is pro posed to take?
§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Chamberlain)
The questions raised by the deputation are under examination, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement. I have undertaken to receive the deputation again when I am ready to communicate my reply to them.
