HC Deb 12 December 1962 vol 669 cc59-60W
35. Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Labour whether, with a view to removing the fear of hardship associated with redundancy in industry, he will prepare a draft scheme on this subject.

Mr. Hare

Last year I published a booklet giving details of existing redundancy schemes suited to the requirements of various industries. I doubt whether the publication of a single draft scheme would meet the varying needs of industry. I shall however be discussing at the next meeting of the National Joint Advisory Council in January what further action we can take to promote improved arrangements for dealing with redundancy.
