PREMIER AND THE MINERS FEDERATION DID NOT ASK FOR AUDIENCE ON THE BILL. Mr. Thomas Ashton, general secretary of the Miners' Federation of Great Bri- tain, made a statement at Manchester in the course of which he said :— "The report "which has appeared in the press stating that the miners' leaders had left for their homes on Friday without receiving a communication from the Prime Minister in reply to their letter containing the miners' resolution against the Compulsory Military Service Bill is inaccurate and misleading. The miners' leaders left for their homes in the usual course, having, finished th-eir business in London. The miners' conference on Thursday de- cided that a letter oontaming the resolu- tion passed by the conference in con- nection with the Compulsory Military Service Bill should be sent to the Prime Minister, and that has since been done. No reply, however, was suggested. "There was another question on the conference agenda, namely, old-age pen- sions. The officials of the Federation were instructed to write to the Prime Minister asking him to receive a deputa- tion from the Federation on this matter."
