"Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown."
"The trade card exemption system was considered at
the adjourned delegate meeting of the different unions affected, held at the
Crown Inn, Snow Hill, Birmingham, last evening. Councillor J. Beard announced
that he had received a letter from the office of the War Cabinet stating that
the question had been under consideration by the Cabinet Committee, and a
statement would be made in the course of a few days. Unofficially, he had heard
a new system was to be set up modifying trade card exemptions. Ultimately it was
decided to postpone action, and in the meantime an interview will be sought with
the Prime Minister."
