THE COMPULSION I i SCHEME. i HENDERSON BETWEEN! TWO FIRES. I The various sections of the La bour party which met on Thursday to consider theÃ' attitude towards the Government's compul- sion proposals decided to call a general Trades L uian Congress for next Thursday in London. From reliable sources (says the "Daily Mail" Parliamentary correspondent) I learn that Mr. Arthur Henderson addressed tiila two Labour meetings on Thursday at soma length. His coun.l generally was in favour of acceptance of the Government scheme. On the whole the opposition to compulsion from Labour leaders was much less than was expected, and good hopes may be drawn from the gatherings, provided that compulsion is pphed only to single men and is accompan- ied by adequate safeguards against personal hardship and injustice. The position of Mr. Henderson de- pends upon the decision of the congress. If it decides against the Government scheme he will resign his post ao Educa- tion Minister. He intends to address the congress length on the issues involved. The Cabinet met on Friday to settle the form of the Bill by which compulsion is to be applied to single men. Pending that it is premature to say that any fixed decsion as to details has been made,, .but a dra.ft of the proposed Bill, drawn up by a Cemmitte; of the Cabinet specially appointed for the purpose, was circulated to all Ministers for their consideration. The latest draft Bill makes the fullest possible use of the machinery already created by Lord Derby's scheme. It is in- tended to apply only to single .nen and to be express l y FOR THE PERIOD OF THE WAR. these two concessions being important for the placation of the anti-eonipulsionists. It contemplates the calling up of men in groups according to their age and provides that, they may obtain exemptions and post- ponem&nta through the local tribunals in t-he sam? way as has been provided for under Lord Derby .? scheme.
