Rover: Striking storekeepers and internal transport men at Cardiff decided yesterday to continue their action which has already halted production of the Rover 2000 and made idle 3,600 day and night shift workers in South Wales and Solihull. The Cardiff men will not a meet again until next week.

“The situation is causing concern. It could probably stop us.” said the official.
