THE WHY OUT. ft ——— -——— LABOUR MINISTERS REMAIN. THREAT OF THE WELSH MINERS. As a result of the Prime Minister's meet- ing with the Labour Party oil Tuesday, it wan decided that the Labour members ot the Government-—Mr. Henderson, Mr. braco, and Mr. Uob^rts—.should defer thoir ■re-sign;)tions until after the general meeting of the Labour Party at Bristol on January 25, as the whole question compulsion aud the party attitude wi.il have to be discusscl at that gathering. It was well known that the Labour Minis- ters did liot themselves wish to resign, fofl they are in full agreemc it with the policy t, the P C) I .C Y of the Government, but they had felt that they were bound by the decision of the Labour Congress last week. Events have shown more and more -'le?rly that this COB- gress did not really represent Labour r,?,,pre,,ient Ja b our The way out now found for the Labour Ministers is a happy one, more especially as iliA. Compulsion Hijl will have passed by the time the Bristol meeting is held. The welsh Miners' Threat. hxciitement has been caused throughout South V\ ales by the disquieting resolutions passed by a conference of the South W alts miner's (as reported in our 5.30 edition). It was decided by n larg e majority to oppose at the Miners' Federation of Great Britain conference the Military Service Bill. Then it was decided, by 162 against 83, to vote at to-morrow's conference for down-tools policy in the event of the Com* pulisory Bill being pased into law. n was further decided, hv 127 to 109. that before a down-tools policy be adopted a. ballot of the miners of tlio United King- dom lie tak en. I "OVERWHELMING." THE BRITISH MiN E RS" MAJORITY, J IAGAINST THE COMPULSION BILL. j The Miners' Conference on Thursday j'1 Txundon decided to accept the districts' re* oort which s hows an overwhelming majority against the Military Swvioe Bill, and to ca-.It a further conference to consider futuret action in the event of the Bill being pa^cL i VERY FINE LANGUAGE! '4 III,, rress Association was also autliori4 j tatively informed that the decision of the* miners conference does not mean in any, sense that there has been a weakening of th miners' opposition to compulsion in any. form. The decision wa.s arrived at practi- cally unanimousl y on the ground that the miners do not consider it necessary to. flatter this or any other ( abinet by mean., of a strike, but they believe the Govern, ment will realise the necessity in this case, as in previous cases since the commemce- ment of the war. of consulting tl*» miners before the Bill becomes law, in the event of the Prime Minister consulting the exeou- tive committee of the Miners' Federation; before the passing of the Bill, the national conference may be called immediately fat.. loiWang any snob interview.
