"Families Broken Up
Major C. R. Attlee, the leader of the parliamentary Labatir party, speaking at St. Helens, denounced the record of the National Government, which, he said, v.e.s one of class legislation of a most vicious type. On the one hand, they had broken up poor families through the Means-Test while, on the other, they had poured subsidy after subsidy into the pockets of rich industrialists and ship-owners.
There had been a rigorous inquiry into the means of the poor, but no inquiry had been made when it was sought to benefit the rich by imposing tariffs on imported goods.
rearnEy Life Destroyed Mr. J. Tinker, speaking at St. Helens, said that the Means-Test had done more to destroy t: • family than the most subversive propaganda of decadent intellectuals. It had resulted in children turning against parents and brother against brother, and if the policy were persisted in something approaching anarchy would result.
