From this website
1971 - a postal strike results in no Official Albums
Charts being circulated from February through to April. (As a result,
the definitive OfficialCharts.com chart archive database reflects the
Melody Maker album charts for this period. The Official Singles Chart is
limited to a Top 40 for the same period too).

Hi. Does anyone know the reason why the Top 50 became a 40 only for 7 weeks??

Was it a postal strike which prevented some of the retailers sending their returns?
