4. Mr. Mathers

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has any special measures in view to deal with the abnormal increase in unemployment in the Linlithgow area, caused by the closing of the factory which has been carrying on production for the Government?

Mr. E. Brown

I am aware of the increased unemployment in this area, and the hon. Member may be assured that every effort will be made to find alternative employment for the workers at present unemployed.
