HC Deb 10 February 1958 vol 582 c17W
Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Labour if he will make a statement on the recent stoppage of work at the Pressed Steel Company's factory, near Swindon.

Mr. Iain Macleod

About 1,100 workers employed by the Pressed Steel Company Limited, Swindon, ceased work on 4th February in connection with a wages claim which has been rejected by the firm. I understand that the strike was unofficial. Work was resumed today 10th February, to allow negotiations under the agreed procedure to continue.
