PEACE AND MILITARY AFFAIRS
LONDON, April 11. *The National Labour Executive, in a manifesto, states that it is gravely concerned at the delays at the Pails Conference, which are entailing a continuation • of the blockaxTe' and the paralysis of industrial and political affairs, leading inevitably to the spread of anarchy in certain European States, and seriously menacing democratic government there and ■ elsewhere. The executive urges the . Peace_ Conference to abandon the delays and make peace in accordance' with 'Mr Wilson's Fourteen Points, and the inter-Allied. Conference's decisions, thus securing democracy against militarism and anarchy. . The executive adds that the Conscription Bill is unnecessary,, and a direct violation of election pledges. It demands that the policy of military interference be stopped forthwith and regrets the inability -of the British Government to make up its mind regarding its attitude towards Russia, which has resulted in the British Force being left practically isolated and exposed to attack "-at Murmansk and Archangel. It expresses a most emphatic opinion that arrangements should be made for the immediate cessation of hostilities and the safe withdrawal of the troops.
