    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 2: Interviewer: ".....Mr Heath, you proposals for trade union changes. Now what good would your proposed changes do in the present wave of industrial anarchy we have in this country?" You say you want a law which make people who start, or take part in, wildcat strikes, liable for action for damages in the court"



    SEQ. 3: Heath: "Yes"



    SEQ. 4: Interviewer: "You're going to make the Liverpool dockers and the Barbican strikers liable for action for damages in the court?"



    Heath: "Yes. You see, I believe that the trade unionists of this country, the great majority of them, are law-abiding people. And I believe too that they are sick to death with the present wave of industrial unrest. They know it's damaging them as trade unionists and they know it's damaging the country. And if Parliament passes a law to this effect, I believe that they will observe it. It happens in other countries; I believe it will happen here. Shall I tell you what the details are? That each man should have in his contract of service the conditions which have been negotiated with the union. If he then breaks these conditions, then of course, he's liable in the industrial court. And if the employer breaks them, then he's liable too. This is a fair approach to both the unionist and the employer."
