§ Sir L. Lyle
asked the Home Secretary what evidence he has that recent strikes have been the result of subversive propaganda by persons hostile to this country with a view to impeding the British national war effort?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
Persons who are hostile to the war effort are so few in number and their influence is so small that it would be misleading to suggest that strikes have been the result of their propaganda. A close watch is, however, being kept on the activities of such persons including any attempts they make to foment industrial unrest.
