§ Mr. Patrick Maitland
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that considerable numbers of men are now employed on constructional work by the Daer Water Board in the county of Lanark, which is nearing completion; and what steps he is taking to indicate alternative opportunities of employment to those men likely to become redundant on the completion of this work.
§ Sir W. Monckton
I am told that this work will not be completed for another year and the rundown of the labour force will be very gradual. Should any redundancy occur, the services of my local officers will be available to assist those, affected to find other employment.
