  • Description

    Britain's minors show no signs of giving up the overtime ban which has put the rest of the country's industry on a three-day working week.

    Mining communities and the quarter-of-a-million miners still believe their claim for more pay is fair. The government say the miners' pay increase would break wage restrictions brought in to stop prices rising.

    Britain's opposition Labour party have just produced an election manifesto on the country's present problems and there are rumours that there could be an early general election. The Labour party have promised to end all legal controls on pay rises but recent opinion polls back the government's stand on pay and prices and give the ruling Conservative party a three per cent lead over Labour.
