§ 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.
