The Chairman made a statement as to the proceedings of the Trades’ Union Commission of Inquiry, which he had attended as representative of this Committee. Mr. GeorgePotter, of London, a member of our Committee, was the next witness, and was examined at great length on the constitution and practice of his local Society, as well as on his experience of Trade Societies generally, and his acquaintance with other Associations of an analogous kind. Mr Potter gave very lucid evidence on all points, and specially that it is quite untrue, as alleged by the enemies of Trades’ Unions, that their effect is to prevent the more highly-skilled and prudent artizan to better his condition, but that every man was at full liberty to appraise his own labour, and act accordingly, although, as a general rule, people should never forget that our motto should be “each for all and all for each.”.
