HC Deb 23 May 1950 vol 475 c225W
4. Squadron Leader Burden

asked the Secretary of State for War how many men and women, respectively, will become redundant when the Gun Wharf, Chatham, closes down; and what steps are being taken to provide alternative employment in the Medway area.

Mr. M. Stewart

The closing down of the Returned Stores Depot at the Gun Wharf, Chatham, will result in the discharge of 34 male and 58 female temporary employees. I understand that in accordance with normal practice the local officers concerned are in close touch with the local office of the Ministry of Labour.
