A Labour Party Revolt On Wednesday, at a meeting of

the Labour Parlia- mentary Party, Mr. Henderson stoutly rebuked the I.L.P. members for their recent indiscipline in the House of Commons. In the Air Force Debate twenty-four members had voted for the abolition of the Force in flat contradiction of the policy of the Government to treat disarmament internationally. Mr. Henderson did not hesitate to say that the rebels had better obey or leave the Party. Thus, the cleavage becomes more marked. Such a tendency towards the establishment of two per- manent camps will inevitably be read into the much larger context of the present readiness of the Liberal Party to co-operate with official Labour.
