A spokesman for Jaguar and Standard-Triumph said the Girling dispute was not affecting their production, but the position was being watched. Three other motor industry strikes ended yesterday. At a lunchtime meeting strikers at the S.U. carburettor factory at Erdington, Birmingham, decided to resume work immediately so that negotiations on their dispute could take place at factory level.

In Coventry strikes which started on Monday at Jaguar and Standard-Triumph International ended. Production returned to normal.


The three strikes that ended yesterday all began on Monday.
