• Loss of take-home pay resulting from the cuts in permitted working hours which took effect from March I have led to widespread labour troubles in the haulage industry. Demands for increases of as much as 25 per cent in basic pay have been made in some places. Strikes against loss of pay have continued into this week in the Midlands and North, and there were fears among road hauliers that the trade unions would try to make capital out of the new legislation by pressing for increases much greater than the loss of earnings involved.
