Archive : Lord Stokes on the Miner’s strike

Lord Stokes, chairman of British Leyland, said yesterday that industry would face serious problems through the pits strike but the Government had nothing to be ashamed of.

His company announced later that output of Morris Marinas at Cowley will be cut to a maximum of 4,250 a week because of labour and parts shortages and the expected drop in the home market. But while the three-day week continues, output of the model will be cut to 2,500 a week.
