The 150 machinists who walked out from Jaguar Cars in Coventry, on Friday complaining that the public address system was to noisy, returned to work yesterday. A company spokesman said that since adjustments to a newly installed loudspeaker there had been no complaints, and work was back to normal.

A new move will be made today to end the strike which has stopped Mini production at the Austin-Morris factory at longbridge, Birmingham. The strikers had planned not to meet again until Thursday, but union officials and shop stewards have called the 330 press operators involved in a manning dispute at British Leyland’s car body factory in Castle Bromwich to a special meeting.
