The strike on the London Tube railways was settled temporarily on Saturday, February 8, pending the result of the joint conferences between the Railway Executive Committee and Executive Committees of the Railwaymen’s Unions. It was arranged to hold the first of these conferences, for discussing the whole question of the conditions of railway service, in London on February 12. There was a partial restriction of services, owing to strikes, on the London and South-Western and Brighton lines. Although thb Tube strike was


settled on the 8th, the trains did not run on that day. and on’y the Central London line could begin on the morning of Sunday, the 9th, owing to delay in obtaining electric power, caused by the hard frost. The co’d weather intensihed the discomfort and inconvenience caused to the general public and to soldiers and sailors on leave. Among those in the long queues of people at Golder’s Green waiting for a ‘bus or lorry was Sir David Shackleton, the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Labour.
