§ 67. Dr. Dickson Mabon
asked the Minister of Labour what was the incidence of short-time working in the shipbuilding, steel and paper-making industries in Scotland over the last three months.
§ Mr. Green
From reports received by our local offices, I estimate that in iron and steel, including steel tubes, 4,200 workers were on short time at end April, 4,300 at end May and 4,200 at end June. Corresponding figures for paper making were 470, 390 and 150. No short-time working in shipbuilding has been reported.
