Mr. J. P. L. Thomas
asked the Minister of Supply whether the assisted travel scheme, by which workers are brought from Brynmawr to the Pontrilas depot, can now cease in view of the expense of the scheme, and the readiness of local labour to be employed at the depot.
§ Mr. J. Jones
The termination of the assisted travel scheme at a number of establishments, including Pontrilas Storage Depot, is being discussed with the trade union side of the Ministry of Supply Joint Industrial Council. I hope it will soon be possible to fix a date for it to cease at Pontrilas.
