HC Deb 19 February 1957 vol 565 c46W
81. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the shortage of work, which has resulted in short-time working and a consequent loss to Great Britain's export trade, in the engineering firm of R. G. Garvil and Sons, Aberdeen; and if he will ascertain and state the precise causes of this, and take steps to rectify and solve the relevant problems.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Yes. I understand that the short-time working was caused by the cancellation of an Egyptian order. Full-time work has now been resumed.
