Leyland awaits 8-9 pc price verdict
By Clifford Webb

British Leyland, reported to be losing £3m a week because of the power crisis, have told their dealers they expect the Price Commission to approve increases on all their cars and commercial vehicles ” very shortly now “. Dealers said last night they had been informed ” unofficially ” by company sales staff that the rise would be between 8 and 9 per cent. They expect a formal announcement within a week.

About 7,000 workers at British Leyland’s Jaguar car plant at Coventry have voted to accept a pay agreement. It will mean the elimination of piecework and the introduction of a flat rate pay system.
