HC Deb 02 October 1941 vol 374 c724
87. Mr. Mander

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production what steps have been taken to provide work at an aircraft factory, the name of which has been given to him, with a view to preventing unemployment during the period involving a change-over from one type of machine to another and whether he can give an assurance that effective proposals have been put forward and accepted for this purpose?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production (Mr. Montague)

Arrangements have been made for additional work to be made available to the factory during the period of change over and this work has been accepted by the firm. It is not practicable, however, wholly to fill the gap and some labour has been withdrawn for employment elsewhere.
