HC Deb 16 March 1948 vol 448 c1854
5. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Minister of Labour what action he has taken in the matter of finding alternative employment for those British workers available as a result of the closure of Elstow brickworks, Bedfordshire.

Mr. Isaacs

By arrangement with my Department all British workers who became redundant as a result of the closing of Elstow brickworks were offered alternative work by the London Brick Company. Workers who were unwilling to accept the alternative work offered have been interviewed for other employment, and it is not anticipated that there will be any difficulty in placing them in other essential work.
