  • Description

    Full title reads: "WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT IT - THE STRIKE - AND YOU".

    London.

    Opinion poll on the meat workers strike and bringing army to sort it out. Several shots of an army convoy moving along a road to a distribution centre. Medium shot of a butcher standing outside his shop at Smithfield market. Several shots of the soldiers loading meat into lorries. A large crowd at the Angel. Various people talking to Pathe reporter John Parsons. Two middle aged housewives, a tousle haired teen aged girl, a middle aged man, a young married woman with a baby, a jellied eel stall holder wearing a cloth cap - all good cockney types. Lorries passing through the street.
