HC Deb 12 June 1958 vol 589 cc40-2W
Mr. Knox Cunningham

asked the Minister of Supply whether he will state the respective numbers of persons, formerly employed by Short Brothers and Harland Limited at their branch factories at Altona, Lisburn, and at Ballyclare, who are now employed at their main factory in Belfast, and the respective numbers of persons formerly employed at such branch factories who have been declared redundant.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Three hundred and seventy-one of those previously employed at the Altona, Lisburn, and Ballyclare factories of Messrs. Short Brothers and Harland are now employed in the main factory at Belfast. Twenty-one left Shorts' employment of their own accord, and 100 have been declared redundant.
