Conservatives urge government to use strike ban laws

The
Conservative Party has called on the Government to use its legal powers to
prevent the latest round of fire strikes.

Shadow
deputy prime minister David Davis said the Government should prevent to strike
because of the pressure currently being place on the military.

He
said the strike, due to take place on Tuesday, was needless and irresponsible
at a time when the armed forces were under strain.

The
Conservatives believe the ministers should use trade union legislation passed
by the Thatcher government to block the walkout.
