§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that 475 women and 195 men will lose their jobs in January, 1964,with the closure of the Fropax frozen food factory in King's Lynn, Norfolk; and what action he proposes to take to ensure that alternative work is available for these workers before this factory closes down.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
Yes. Our local officers are in close touch with the management of the factory and have arranged to register for employment those affected, many of whom are part-time and casual workers, in advance of their discharge. The full facilities of our Department will be available to all those who seek our help.
