The Committee, having heard the report of their Chairman and Secretary as to their interview, with its rather severe cross-examination, on Wednesday, the 4th inst. — at Transport House, Smith Square, London, S.W.1, at 3.15 p.m. — with representatives of the National Council of Labour, beg to express their thanks and reiterate their confidence in their voluntary officers for the excellent work so far undertaken, and performed, and the meritorious way in which the responsibility of the Committee has been met. All the officers have worked with the cognisance and approval of the Committee, and action taken under delegated plenipotentiary powers have always been subsequently endorsed.
The Committee RESOLVES that representation should be made to the National [Joint] Council of Labour in the following terms:
