THE SUPPRESSED LABOUR PAPER. I Mr Lloyd George spoke with great warmth on Monday night in the Hou&e of Commons in defending the action of suppressng the Glasgow Socialist news- paper "Forward." His argument was that the offence of the "Forward" was a cumulative one, that it had persistently stirred up disaffection in a district more import- ant than any other in the United King dom for the production of munitions of war for the Army and Navy. He challenged Mr Pringle and Mr. Anderson to say whether they ap- proved the counsel and advice given by the "Forward" urging opposition to the dilution of skilled labour. Hindrances in the production of munitions meant everything to the men in the trenches. "We are deal- ing i,n tragedies." Upon whether this proposal for the dilution of labour is adopted, depends the lives of hundreds of thousands of gallant fellows at the front. It might be that the life of this Empire depends upon it.
