21/7/1915 The Welsh coal miners’ strike is over

The Welsh coal miners’ strike is over. David Lloyd George, the Minister of Munitions, has persuaded the miners to return to work. He has done so mainly by conceding the bulk of their demands. The Welsh mines are not publicly owned, but Lloyd George is able to make the mine owners accept the terms he has agreed with the miners.

Lloyd George appeals to all sides to put the strike behind them. He also urges extra efforts on the part of the miners, to make up for the production lost during the strike.
