Normal work will be resumed tomorrow at Jaguar Cars, Coventry, where 700 workers in a wages dispute last week stopped all car assembly. More than seven hundred others had to be laid off.


Production was returning to normal today at Jaguars. who lost £1,250,000 last week because of an unofficial strike by 700 assembly men.

At Standard Triumph, full production was being restored as car delivery drivers, who were on strike last week, continued to clear the backlog of cars which had choked up the factory.

The strike has cost Standard Triumph more than £1,000,000 .
