§ Mr. Malcolm MacPherson
asked the Minister of Labour for how many men and women, respectively, redundant because of the closing of the British-American Tobacco factory in Stirling, alternative employment has now been found; and how many remain without early prospect of alternative employment.
§ Mr. Watkinson
Thirty-one male and 100 female workers formerly employed at the factory have so far been placed in, or found, other employment. Eleven males and 55 females remain registered at the 17W local employment exchange. Prospects of finding work for the males are good. Prospects for the females are less promising, but the employment exchange is making every effort to place them in suitable employment.
