LONDON DOCK STRIKE

GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION Rec. 12.30 p.m. LONDON, July 23. The Government to-night intervened in the go-slow strike at the London docks, which has almost brought workers to a standstill for two months. The dockers, at a mass meeting, to-day rejected proposals relating to wages agreed to at the joint conference last Friday.

The Ministry of Labour immediately announced: "The Government has decided that ships carrying essential cargoes, particularly foodstuffs for the London area, shall continue to use the port when necessary. Avoidable delays cannot be permitted. All necessary steps, therefore, will be taken to ensure expeditious handling."

The nature of the proposed inter vention was not stated.

The Daily Express says that soldiers will be brought in to keep the supplies moving, also that the eo-slow strike has reduced London to a fifth-rate status until, the dockers return to-full work.
