NotesNews: 15 May: Train services were expected to be severely disrupted in spite of the National Industrial Relations court's compulsory ballot order, which required a return to normal working. Sir Sidney Greene, general secretary of the National Union of Railwaymen, said: "We are carrying out the decision of the judge as quickly as we possibly can."
News: 19 May: Sir Alec Douglas-Home was expected to tell the Commons that the Pearce Commission had found the proposed Rhodesia settlement unacceptable to the majority of Rhodesians.
