The Rover Company yesterday laid off 500 men employed on Land-Rover lines at its Solihull factory until Monday because of a hold-up in supplies from the firm’s gearbox factory at Greet, Birmingham, where 58 men have been on strike for a week over a piecework claim.
The strikers met yesterday and decided to return to work on Monday.
