HC Deb 26 July 1960 vol 627 c113W
68. Mr. Donnelly

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what further steps he has taken to meet the unemployment that will occur in South Pembrokeshire when the construction work on the Esso and British Petroleum schemes comes to an end.

Mr. H. Brooke

Though unemployment in South Pembrokeshire is now relatively low, my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade and I are well aware that more jobs are going to be needed when the present construction work runs down, even though a number of those employed on this work are not local men and, therefore, are likely to move to fresh work elsewhere when it is completed; and we are constantly seeking to encourage new sources of employment to replace those that will be finished.
