NotesNews: 31 May: Experts investigating the cable car accident on the Great Orme at Llandudno said that nothing mechanically wrong had been found. Neither the empty cable car which crashed 30ft leaving the bottom terminal not the machinery in the building were faulty. News: 1 June: Finance officers of the National Union of Blastfurnacemen, whose 15,000 state steel members went on strike, were encouraged to raise capital for a long stoppage. The strike was over the twice rejected 35 per cent pay claim tabled by the union.
