HC Deb 12 June 1961 vol 642 c10W
80. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has considered the letters of the hon. Member for Swindon, dated 25th May and 6th June, regarding the closing of the Swindon Tool Company, and the dismissal of twenty-five skilled men; and what action he will take in the matter.

Mr. Hare

The hon. Member will now have received my reply of 8th June to his letters. Only six former employees of the firm are now registered at Swindon Employment Exchange. I understand that production was resumed today at the factory and a number of ex-employees have been asked to return to work there.
