Whitley Principle. I WORKERS' FEDERATION AND SAFE. I GUARDS TO TRADE UNIONS. A con ference of the National .Federation of General Workers held at Caxton Hall on Wed- nesday expressed approval of the proposal to set up a statistical department to collect and distribute information relating to industries covered by the Federation, but thought it bet- ter to circularise the various unions with a view to the matter being further considered at the annual meeting. The Whitley principle was approved, but the conference urged that safeguards should be taken to secure that the scheme was not used in such a way as to damage trade union organi- sation. Mr. J. M. Bell, who presided, said that un- der the scheme it was proposed to set up shop committees, but there wa.s no stipulation that the representatives on those committees should be trade unionists. Consequently they might easily have an organisation of non-unionists set up as a rival union.
