COf T OF BRITISH STRIKE London, October 12. Mr. J. H. Thomas, speaking at the Labour Conference to-day, gave some startling figures as to what the coal strike was costing trades unions. He said that since May 45,000 railwaymen had- been out of work while 200,000 were only working two days a week. In the Transport Workers' Union 80, 000 men had been out of employment ¡while 100,000 had been working: part \ time. He said- that this union had spent a million .sterling in the interests of .the miners and was now half a mil- lion sterling in debt.. Mr Thomas made these statements in reply to a resolution to impose a compulsory levy on other unions and to put embargo on imported coal. "You know you can't do "either, so don't play the hypocrite," he exclaimed.
