§ Captain Pilkington
asked the Minister of Labour to what extent the personnel formerly working at Holton Heath have been placed in other industries; and what prospect of work there is for the further 115 who will shortly become redundant.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
More than half of the employees concerned have been transferred to other Government establishments; most of the others obtained employment in other factories or in the building industry; five of them are registered as unemployed at my local offices. I do not expect any difficulty in placing the skilled workers amongst those to be discharged this month but it may take a little time to find fresh employment for the unskilled.
