Asked the Prime Minister’s view of today’s tube strike, the PMOS said the Prime Minister believed that such strikes were unnecessary and should be resolved through proper talks between managers and the workforce. Asked if the Prime Minister was sympathetic to the idea of outlawing strike action on London Underground, the PMOS repeated that this was a matter which should be left to the management and workforce to sort out between themselves. It went without saying that strikes, such as the one today, served no purpose.
