HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c400W
Sir F. Sanderson

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that approximately 20,000 workers engaged in Napier's aircraft factories have been declared redundant by the management; and what does he propose to do in the matter.

Mr. Butler

According to my information 6,000 workers will be released from this Company's London and Liverpool factories in the next four to five months as a result of programme reductions. Sufficient vacancies are likely to be available to absorb the workers released.
