HC Deb 30 June 1960 vol 625 c139W
18. Mr. Monslow

asked the President of the Board of Trade what alternative source of employment he will provide to off-set the redundancies pending at the Barrow Steel Works.

Mr. Maudling

There are several hundred new jobs in prospect in the Furness district, and my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour does not expect any great difficulty in placing workers who become redundant at the Barrow Steel Works in new employment. My Department will continue to encourage firms to set up in the district.
