    Background: While U.K. car union leaders saw the Trade Union Council's Committee in London, Jan. 30, about the industry's problems, 4,000 car workers marched through the capital, in protest against "impending disaster" of the industry.

    The men came from the major car factories in Britain. Their main protest was against short time working introduced for 120,000 workers in recent months.

    On their placards were slogan like "Trade tractors with India, not tigers", "Cut profits, not wages", and "No dawdling, Maudling".

    Afterwards they held a protest rally in Hyde Park, while delegates went to lobby their representatives in Parliament.
