HC Deb 08 November 1961 vol 648 c61W
Mrs. Braddoek

asked the Minister of Labour what steps have been taken to find employment for the men who have been made redundant by Messrs. John Laing, Ltd., as a result of the closure of the Littlewood's contract in Derby Lane, Liverpool.

Mr. Hare

Of the 112 men discharged, 52 registered for employment at Employment Exchanges in the Liverpool area. Of these, three have so far been placed by my Department and 24 have found work for themselves. My local officers will continue their efforts to find employment for the remainder.
