  • Description

    LONDON'S INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW IS EXPECTED TO DRAW HALF A MILLION PEOPLE IN 10 DAYS. TODAY (WEDNESDAY) ON OPENING DAY, IT DREW AN UNEXPECTED NUMBER OF PEOPLE - SOME 4,000 CAR WORKERS ON A PROTEST MARCH PAST THE GIANT EXHIBITION HALL.

    THEY BELONG TO SOME OF LONDON'S BIGGEST VEHICLE-BUILDING WORKS EXHIBITING THEIR LATEST MODELS AT THE SHOW. THE MEN ARE DEMANDING A 40 HOUR WEEK AND A SUBSTANTIAL PAY INCREASE.

    THOUGH BRITAIN'S CAR INDUSTRY IS BOOMING, THE MEN SAY THEY FEAR JOBS FOR THEM ARE GETTING FEWER. THE MARCH COMES AS THE MAKERS ARE NOW APPROACHING A RECORD YEAR IN PRODUCTION, SALES AND EXPORTS.
