    Background: Workers in the printing dispute held a meeting in the Scottish Corporation building in Fetter Lane this morning. At lunch time they decided to send a deputation to the Management of the "Daily Mirror".

    They then marched from Fetter Lane the short distance to the "Daily Mirror" offices in Geraldine House carrying banners. They were stopped by a police cordon some 30 yards from the offices. After chanting various slogans demanding a 40 hour week for some 15 minutes they were then addressed by Mr.F. TISSHAW, the Father of the Chapel of the "Daily Mirror" night staff.

    Mr.TISSHAW implored them to keep the peace and avoid any disturbance or conflict with the police and announced that the "Daily Mirror" management had agreed to receive a deputation. He then asked them to disperse quietly.

    The procession departed up Fetter Lane at approximately 1.45 p.m.
