§ Mr. Dudley Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what steps she is taking to avert the one-day token strike scheduled for New Year's Day on London Transport.499W
§ Mr. Mulley
I have been asked to reply.
I am meeting Mr. Jack Jones of the Transport and General Workers Union and a delegation of his members to explore the situation today. I hope that this exchange of views will help to avoid a strike which would cause great inconvenience to the travelling public and damage to the economy.
