Miners Decide to Strike

Resistance to Income Tax

(Reuter’s Message.)

The Welsh miners have voted in favor of a strike in resistance to the income tax.

That was the whole thing. And it didn’t give me much to go on. After some sleuthing, I found a little bit more:

The Income Tax.

Miners Object to Pay

The final figures in respect to the ballot of the Welsh miners gave 73,307 votes in favor of the strike to enforce the £200 limit in the income tax exemption, and 72,837 votes against the strike.

The council of the Welsh miners have decided to defer the strike pending a conference with the Miners Federation of Great Britain, which has been asked to arrange a national ballot on the subject.
