Chrysler of Britain and other manufacturers in the ailing industry have put their workers on a three-day week because of slumping demand that has left tens of thousands of cars unsold. There was no immediate government comment on the reports. However, Prime Minister Harold Wilson told the House of Commons last week that the U.S. com- reported a net loss of million last to carry on its operations in Britain. Chrysler employs more than workers at plants in Scotland and the English Midlands. The reports in the Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Ex- press say Trade Secretary AnthonyBenn has made con- tingency plans to take Chrysler of Britain into state ownership rather than see its plants run down. Benn was said to be studying a confiden- tial letter from John Riccar- do, president of Chrysler Car rebate offers end this week DETROIT (AP) Car rebate offers expire this week and Ford Motor Co. is ex- pected to match General Motors' decision to lower the price tag on some compact models by eliminating some standard equipment. The to rebates, which went into effect in early January, lowered new car in- ventories, but not nearly enough to force the car com- panies to increase production and call back workers. With 13 assembly lines clos- ed this week, of the in- dustry's blue-collar workforce are laid off. President Lee lacocca says Ford will step up production 50 per cent next-month and begin calling back some of the workers who are indefinitely laid off. Eight of Ford's assembly lines are closed this week. Three are closed at GM and two at Chrysler. GM was able to reduce the sticker price on nine of its small cars by to by. knocking off some equipment that had been considered standard. However, the cost of its lowest-price Chevrolet unchanged. Corp., on the future plans. "The government plan would be implemented only if- the Americans decided to end the Sunday Telegraph says. "There is no suggestion of nationalization against the owners' wishes." A Chrysler spokesman in company's Detroit said Riccardo told Benn in the letter that the auto-maker "is doing everything possible to stay in business in Great Britain." The spokesman said that the letter is not confidential and Benn is free to release its con- tents. The spokesman conceded Chrysler sales in Britain have been poor and the firm might be forced to halt production from time to time to reduce mounting inventories. "We can't let unsold models stack up in the fields of London anymore than we can let them stack up he said.
