HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c311W
110. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that nine men, whose names and other particulars have been sent him, who served with the Arrow Fuel Works, Newport, for periods of from 40 to 50 years before it was closed down last year, have been out of work since its closure; and what steps he is taking to offer them suitable alternative employment.

Mr. Isaacs
