HC Deb 01 February 1955 vol 536 c92W
90. Mr. G. Roberts

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps have been taken by his Department to make use of the buildings at the Llanberis Air Ministry Unit No. 31 for industrial purposes, in view of the serious unemployment that will result in the district when they are evacuated by the Air Ministry.

Mr. H. Strauss

We bring the buildings to the attention of any industrialist who we hope may be interested, but it would be wrong to suggest to the House that it is proving easy to find an industrial tenant. As my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister for Welsh Affairs informed the House on 24th November, 1954, the Ministry of Labour will do everything it can to find alternative employment for those who are discharged.
