HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 cc158-9W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the number and sexes of the persons employed in the bacon and pig industries in Aberdeen city and county during each of the last 10 years; and what steps he is taking to arrest the increasing unemployment in these two industries in Aberdeen.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Forward to
