§ 57. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the closure of three factories employing 800 workers in Dundee; and what action he proposes to take.40W
employed and on short-time working, respectively, in the county of Durham; and how these numbers compare with the corresponding numbers this time last year.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I understand that when these factories close the number of workers likely to be discharged will not exceed 160. As soon as workers are selected for discharge they will be invited to register at my local office which will do its best to place them in other employment.
