LETTER: Comm. Sir R. H. Williams-Bulkeley, Bart., K.C.B. to Clerk to the Lieutenancy enclosing carbon copy of letter from R.H. W-B. to Lord Chancellor, together with his reply.
1) COPY LETTER: R.H. W.B. to Lord Chancellor informing him that certain Justices on the Holyhead Bench, employees of the L.M.S Railway and Trades Union members, played some part in the General Strike. In the writer's opinion it is futile to appoint such persons [ to the Bench] as representatives of the working class, as their record of attendance for the last three and a half years is very low. He believes their excuse is that they lose a day's pay if they attend. He hopes to receive L.C's remark on the matter.
2) LETTER: of reply from L.C, to R. H. W-B, promising to enquire into specific complaints of misconduct during the General Strike. However the L.C will not take action against Magistrates who, because they were Trades Unionists, merely took part in the strike.
