CHAR 1/272/99

Press-cutting from the Daily Mail of an interview with Joseph Jones, President of the Miners' Federation, by Randolph Churchill. Churchill notes that the miners had voted to strike if they did not receive a wage increase of 2 shillings a day and gives an account of Jones's explanation of the miners' position, particularly that a strike would be held in the winter and that the main financial costs would be to the local authorities. Churchill then comments that he was certain the strike would not go ahead, and gives an account of a further interview with Captain Roland Addy, managing director of the Carlton Main Colliery Company Limited, owning mines in Yorkshire and Wales. Addy states that although the mining industry was technically well-managed, it was hardly managed at all from the commercial and political viewpoint, and calls for mine owners to meet the miners to arrange a national settlement. He also comments on the bad effect of different wage-scales in various parts of the country, adding that any wage increases should be on a flat rate, rather than a percentage, which would only exacerbate the effects of varying wage-scales.
