HC Deb 06 November 1961 vol 648 c20W
50. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Minister of Labour what action is being taken to ensure continuity of employment for the members of the National Union of Vehicle Builders and others, in view of the proposal of Messrs. Petbow, Limited, to close their Kirkby, Lancashire, factory and transfer the work to their premises in Kent.

Mr. Hare

My local officers have been registering the redundant workers in advance of their discharge. Every effort is being made to find them suitable employment.
