No decision was made by the Transport Workers’ Federation as to whether their members would support the coal miners in their strike. It was expected that a final decision would be made over the next day.

Earl Curzon spoke in the House of Lords to say that the situation with the miners’ strike was becoming critical and numerous pits were in danger of being permanently flooded unless agreement could be reached soon. He added that there was “a desperate spirit” in some parts of the country.

The Postmaster General announced that the mail service to Russia would be restarted.
