    Background: FURTHER PROTESTS HAVE BEEN MADE IN MALTA THIS WEEKEND FOLLOWING THE DECISION BY BRITISH SERVICE DEPARTMENTS TO DISCHARGE MORE MALTESE WORKERS BECAUSE OF REDUCED SERVICE ACTIVITY.

    BRITISH SERVICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE BEEN STEADILY REDUCING THEIR LABOUR FORCES ON MALTA FOR SEVERAL YEARS BECAUSE OF THE ISLAND'S REDUCED STRATEGIC IMPORTANCE.

    THIS REDUCTION BY THE SERVICE DEPARTMENTS HAS CAUSED CONCERN IN MALTA BECAUSE THERE IS LITTLE ALTERNATIVE EMPLOYMENT. AT PRESENT MALTA HAS ABOUT SEVEN THOUSAND UNEMPLOYED AND THIS IS EXPECTED TO RISE BY ANOTHER TWO THOUSAND VERY SHORTLY.

    AT A PROTEST MEETING HELD AT BLATA-IL-BAJDA, IN MALTA, AT THE WEEKEND, THE NATIONAL FRONT ORGANISATION SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE LATEST EMPLOYMENT CUTS.

    THE NATIONAL FRONT REPRESENTS ALL MALTA'S TRADE UNIONS, THE CATHOLIC ACTION MOVEMENT, AND YOUNG CHRISTIAN WORKERS. CHURCHES, CINEMAS AND MOST PLACES OF ENTERTAINMENT WERE CLOSED WHILE THE RALLY WAS HELD.
