HC Deb 03 March 1958 vol 583 cc105-6W
Mr. Pentland

asked the Minister of Supply to what extent the level of employment is assured in the Birtley, County Durham, Royal Ordnance Factory; and what are the prospects for the future.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Although the future of employment at any factory depends on the level of orders, which is not entirely predictable, I feel reasonably confident that we shall be able to maintain stable employment at R.O.F. Birtley for some time to come.
