§ Sir W. Smiles
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will give instructions 380W that local ex-Servicemen with priority should be employed in the Holywood, County Down, Ordnance Depot and that the services of civilians from Eire be now dispensed with.
§ Mr. Lawson
As I said on 15th November, in answer to a Question by the hon. Member for Down (Dr. Little), civilian employees resident outside Northern Ireland are normally the first to go in the event of redundancy. I am not sure that anything more than this is necessary or could be justified, but I am looking into the matter and will write to the hon. and gallant Member.
