§ 41. Mr. Patrick Maitland
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that about 20 men employed at the Mayfield brickworks, Carluke, in the County of Lanark, have been declared redundant how many of them have now found employment; and what steps he is taking to ease the employment problem in the Carluke area.
§ Mr. Wood
Yes. One is known to be in other employment and another five are believed to have found work. Seven are still registered as unemployed and my local officers are doing all that they can to assist them by submitting them to vacancies notified by employers. The area is eligible for assistance under the Distribution of Industry Act, 1958.
