§ 109. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Minister of Labour the number of people rendered unemployed by the closure of the Wallace Foundry, Dundee, earlier this year; and how many have now been found alternative employment.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
One hundred and sixty workers have been discharged, as redundant by the firm owning this foundry since April last. One hundred are known to have found other work, 11 are not at present seeking other employment and 27 were still registered as unemployed on 23rd July. The remaining 22 have probably found other employment since they have not sought my Department's help.
