Mr Derek Robinson, the former British Leyland convener, went on believing that British Leyland would do a deal with him after his dismissal. He believed that even after men in the Longbridge plants where he was employed had refused to strike for his reinstatement.
That was disclosed yesterday at a Birmingham industrial tribunal, where is was said that Mr Robinson’s dismissal from his toolmaker’s job on November 19 had made him ill. The tribunal agreed to an adjournment until April 30.
