HC Deb 26 February 1952 vol 496 cc132-3W
114. Mr. Edward Davies

asked the Minister of Labour in which areas there is an acute shortage of unskilled workers for Royal Ordnance factories; and what steps are being taken to overcome the difficulty.

Sir W. Monckton

The greatest need for unskilled workers for Royal Ordnance factories is at Chorley and Swynnerton. The employment exchanges are making special efforts to recruit suitable workers for these factories and they will be assisted by the Notification of Vacancies Order which came into operation yesterday.
