100 Years Ago – 3 June 1921

3 June 1921

The Financial Resolutions for the Railway Bill was passed in the House of Commons, which aimed to limit the losses which were being incurred by the rail companies.

The Central Committee of the Mining Association met in London to discuss the Government’s proposals to end the strike in the coal mining industry. Although it had been rumoured that the mine owners would offer their own proposals directly, this was now thought to be unlikely.

The Army Reserve which had been called up in early April 1921 to assist with transporting coal due to the miners’ strike was stood down, with the Government saying that it was no longer required.
