HC Deb 06 December 1961 vol 650 cc160-1W
42. Mr. Cordle

asked the Minister of Labour, in view of the danger of unemployment resulting from the closure of the de Havilland aircraft factory at Christchurch, what arrangements he has made to find alternative work for the skilled and unskilled labour involved.

Mr. Green

My local officers have arranged to register the workers affected before they are discharged, and will do all they can to find them suitable employment. A number of firms have already expressed their interest in recruiting redundant workpeople.
