Tn1 TRADE DISPUTES ACT [To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]

your article, " Trade Unionism " in the Spectator, rMay 29th, you have made a mistake. Referring to the Labour amendment, you go on to say, " Subsequently Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman announced that the Cabinet threw over its law officer (Sir John Lawson Walton) and accepted the clause. Sir John resigned office and the clause [became law." Sir John Lawson Walton did not resign office. He himself accepted the clause and he remained Attorney- General until his death in 1908.—I am, Sir, &c.
