Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CURRIE:

It was to the interest of the British Government, who had placed the orders, to have munitions turned out, but all these mattters delayed the manufacture of munitions. Clergymen were trying to stop munition work on Sundays. Recruiting agents were wanting to get into the munition plants, to get men away from the machines, and send them to the war. Necessarily, those in authority endeavoured- to stop that practice. There is no change politically to be got out of that phase of the question.
