HC Deb 10 April 1952 vol 498 c2954
10. Mr. Leslie Hale

asked the Minister of Labour how many hours of waiting time have been paid for in Messrs. A. V. Roe's Empire Works, Failsworth, in the period of 28 days since the date of his last inquiry in February; and how many skilled workers have now left this factory to go into other industries.

Sir W. Monckton

I regret the information is not available.

Mr. Hale

Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman keep a constant eye on this matter and draw a few economic lessons from the information which I have given him?

Sir W. Monckton

I will, Sir.

Air Commodore A. V. Harvey

If there is waiting time at Avro's factory, is it not because orders were not placed in sufficient time, probably 12 months ago, to keep it sufficiently employed?
