§ Mr. Granville
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is aware of the delay in obtaining satisfactory transport for the workers engaged in the factory, the name of which he has been informed; and whether the regional representative of his Department has visited the works and settled this matter?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
I am advised that there has been some difficulty about the transport of workers to the factory to which my hon. Friend refers due to the fact that the workers live in a number of widely dispersed villages. The Regional Transport Commissioner held a meeting this week with the management and the omnibus operator to discuss arrangements for dealing with this traffic. Negotiations are continuing and I will inform my hon. Friend as soon as a settlement is reached.
