asked the Minister of Labour how many unauthorised strikes have taken place amongst workers in Smithfield Market during each of the past three years; and on how many occasions troops have been employed.

In the year ended June, 1948, there were four unofficial strikes; in the following year, none; last year, one in addition to the present stoppage. Service personnel were used on one occasion, in the year ended June, 1948, and are being used in the present strike.
