HC Deb 09 February 1959 vol 599 c138W
35. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Supply whether he will in any new lease of a nationally-owned factory insist on a clause making provision for the maintenance during the occupation of the factory of a reasonable level of employment.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

No. Such a clause would be impracticable and of dubious legal value. It might deter potential lessees and so defeat its object.
