r MILITARY BILL PASSES IMPORTANT DECLARATION OF LABOUR'S POLICY. In an interview published in the I "Christian Commonwealth" this week, Mr J. H. Thomas, M.P., makes an im- portant declaration regarding his atti- tude towards the Military Service Bill, should it become law. "I do not think," he says, ''anyone can say what will happen after the Bill has passed, if it does pass. "I am inclined to think that before that happens we shall have a general election. This would change the aspect of things a good deal, but I know what ought not to happen, and what I should be bound to do my best to pre- vent: there should be no question of strikes. "I shall have no hand in promoting industrial revolution while the war goes on. It set my face against strikes. If any man has done what in him lies to keep the industrial truce in spirit and in letter, I think I can claim to have done so. I cannot be a party to any efforts to re-awaken in- dustrial strife. It Mr Asquitho promises are kept in regard to safeguarding the measure against abuse by unscrupulous em- ployers, and, provided it is not ex- tended by tyhe Ministers who have brought this thing to pass, and the position of consoentous objectors is not interfered R-itb-siibj,t to these qualifications, if we fail to sustain our case I should be obliged to use my in- fluence to keep industry going. "If these guarantees and precau- tions and warnings are disregarded a situation would then arise which would call for a different policy."
