The Busmen's War

The inconclusiveness of the finding of the Court of Inquiry into the busmen's grievauces was probably inevitable on the basis of the evidence submitted—the case for the men, at any rate had been hastily prepared (though why this should have been so is not clear). But the Transport Board at once offered to co-operate in the further investigation recommended by the Court and to abide by the results. There was some doubt as to whether this undertaking would cover a reduction of hours if the investigation showed it to be required for reasons of health, but a reply to a newspaper reporter seems to make it clear that it would. Under the circumstances the prolongation of the strike can hardly be regarded as other than an act of war upon the community.
