§ 8. Dr. Dickson Mabon
asked the Minister of Labour how many unemployed were registered at Greenock Employment Exchange at the last convenient date and what was the comparable figure 12 months ago; and what percentages of the insured working population these figures represent.
§ Dr. Mabon
In view of these disgraceful figures, is the right hon. Gentleman aware that last Saturday the official closure of another Government establishment took place and 150 men, most of them skilled engineers, will be joining the unemployment queues? If the Government intend to honour their election pledges, does he not think that he should attempt to introduce advance factories to this area?
