NotesImage 1: See 19526 for published cartoon. News: 26 January: An unprecedented form of silent demonstration by between 30 and 40 Labour backbenchers brought the House of Commons to a halt for 15 minutes. The protest was against the Government's motion to put the Industrial Relations Bill under a guillotine so that it could reach the Statute Book in a few months. The division followed its course and the Government won with a majority of 32.
