HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 cc41-2W
106. Mrs. Braddock

asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the concern of the workers employed at Capenhurst Atomic Site at the closing of the Costain Hostel, Manor Lane, Chester; and if he will give further consideration to the matter, in view of the statement sent to him signed by representatives of the men employed at Capenhurst.

Mr. Eccles

The small number of men employed at Capenhurst who now need hostel accommodation does not justify the retention of this hostel. The loss on continued running would be £200 a week. Every effort will be made by the contractors concerned to find adequate alternative accommodation for the workers displaced.
