§ 60. Miss PICTON-TURBERVILL
asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the 437 unemployment in the Ironbridge and Madeley area of Shropshire, whether the work in connection with the super power station at Buildwas can be accelerated?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I understand that the West Midlands Joint Electricity Authority have placed the contract for the building of the super power station referred to, and that work has already been commenced on the site. The Authority have stated that the fullest possible use will be made of all suitable local labour.
§ Miss PICTON-TURBERVILL
Can the hon. Gentleman tell us how many are likely to be employed upon the work?
