A reconstruction of the Askwith Inquiry, which took place during the 1913 Lock-out in Ireland. It was set up by the British government, supposedly to investigate the origins of the dispute, to resolve the grievances of workers and employers, and to end the strike. William Martin Murphy represented the employers’ side, with Jim Larkin and James Connolly speaking for the workers. The film follows the course of the negotiations and includes Connolly’s famous “Statement of the Workers’ Case.” Askwith reported that the workers had significant grievances, but the employers rejected the inquiry’s recommendations. ¦ Written by Turlough Kelly; directed by Brian Gray. Presented in association with Dublin Community Television.
