Home Front:

The Political Committee of the Worcester Cooperative Society having addressed nine questions to the parliamentary candidates for the City of Worcester, a meeting of members was held at the Cooperative Hall on Friday evening to have the replies read.

The Chairman said for many years vested interests had tried to undermine Cooperative interests and during the war the Government had, through its officials, directly or indirectly carried on propaganda against their association. If they do not take up politics seriously the politicians would smother their movement. Now was the time for Societies to protect themselves. (Applause)

A Colour Party of the 1st Battalion has come over from France in order to take the Colours to the regiment so that they can carry them, at their head for the march into Germany.
