Derby's Labour M.P. INTERVIEW WITH MR J. H. THOMAS. Mr J. H. Thomas, M.P., South Wales I organiser of the A.S.R.S., who returned from his viet. fight at Derbyon Monday, was interview; by one of our representatives on Tuesday. Asked how he won Derby, Mr Thomas replied: I won Derby as an Independent Labour candidate, but I did not hesitate to point out that in this great national-crisis all Progressives should unite. and I cannot do other than say that it was this unity of all sections which con- tributed to my success." 1 Mr J. H. THOMAS, M-P. (Photo by F. J. Boyes, Derby.) What was the main plank of yoor plat- form ?" I found on arrival at Derby that' the TarifiSsts had been nursK'g the constituency for years, and I immediiiteiy set about to knock their fallacies on-the head. I also found that tbeir condemnation of the Budget was not quite in accordance with facts, and when the I Budget was explained the people were whole- hearted in their support of it. I also stood for ending the House of Lords, and the more I said against the Lords the-better the-peopleliked it. The action of the Lords generally was placed very clearly before ths e.ieetorg, and I have no hesitation in saving that, this was a determin- ing factor in their opposition to the reactionary candidates." "Did the Liberals support you f" Oh, yes, and as a matter of fact lébour-and I A Liberal split their votes as they have never done before, and so-evenly that-there was only a, difference of abowt loO between us/' What about Cardiff ?" I am. going to vote, of course, -and yon can take it from me that I am not going tolldp to send a Tariff Reformer-to PVfianicnL" Have you any message for your own people in Cardrti 1" Well, having regard to its being a straight fight, and the issues of such vital importance, I have no hesitation in sayingt;hat I prefer to see the Liberal returned, and the workers, without sacrificing their independence or com- promising their position-much as we value our separate identity—will be justified in votingior Mr D. A. Thomas. I am now going-to Msartbyr to speak for Mr Keir Hardie."
