ACTING-PRESIDENT'S STATEMENT. - FIRST NATIONAL ARBITRATION COURT.

Following on a dispute between two sections of the Labour Party, in which certain personal charges had been made, Dáil Eireann was invited to set up a Court to investigate the matter. The Executive appointed Messrs. P.J. Ward, Liam de Roiste, and Dr. Cusack to constitute a Court for the trial of the charges.
At the first meeting of the Court the parties failed to agree as to the specific charges to be tried. A week later for mal charges agreed on by the parties as being the issues to be tried were submitted, and the Court after hearing evidence, delivered judgment by which the parties had previously pledged themselves to abide.
