HC Deb 02 April 1957 vol 568 c36W
91. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that unemployment among building trade operatives in the Bristol area is on the increase; and what steps are being taken to arrest this tendency.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I am aware that unemployment among building and civil engineering workers in the Bristol area has been increasing, but the number registered as unemployed on 11th March was considerably less than a month earlier. There are a number of factory building projects which should provide opportunities for further employment in the area.
