Mr. Bevin presented a strong case for the busmen to the Court of Inquiry appointed by the Ministry of Labour. Indeed, a leader with a different temperament might have put it with a good deal more vigour and yet without exaggeration, for the men have much that they can reasonably say and have been able to call medical and other evidence in support of it. Under the new running schedules they suffer the first impact of travelling conditions that are turning most London workers into dyspeptic neurotics. As employees of a gigantic corporation they have a feeling that their ihdividual and human needs are neglected (here they feel a grievance without clearly identifying the cause). They can quote figures which seem to show economies are being practised upon the workers in the interests of those who are already drawing substantial dividends.
