Fuel Strike

Asked if the Government had any contingency powers or emergency plans to ensure the free flow of petrol, the PMS replied that this was the final day of the current fuel tanker dispute, and as John Hutton had been saying, although the strike had inconvenienced motorists, the public had shown commendable common sense and restraint, which had minimised its harmful impact. In relation to any future action, we were pleased that the parties were resuming negotiations tomorrow, this was an encouraging step forward, and we hoped that it was possible for the two sides to reach an agreement so as to avoid any repetition of this weekend’s disruption.
