(Per Press Association—Copyright.)
QijJiy&i, reoruary to. Cabinet discussed the strike position. At the conclusion .of the meeting the Hon. J. Estell stated that he placed before his colleagues proposals for a j certain course of action. It was decided that further investigations should be made before anything was done. Mr Estell declined to state the nature of the proposals, but it is rumoured that information ■is being gathered with ■ a view to action under the Coercion Act. Probably definite action will stand over till Mr Holman's return. Otherwise the situation shows little change. : . Both sides held meetings to-day, but apparently the. ( parties are marking time until the Government action,.has been revealed. ' ';. « , =- f - '' One development is the removal of the embargo on the skins and hides > *' | stock killed, by, master butchers. This j step has been taken in view of the xact that large numbers of fellmongers' employees have been working short time | for months, and the non-removal of the embargo would have meant 300 unemployed.
