§ 87. Mr. F. Noel-Baker
asked the Minister of Labour what recent consultations he has had with the Railways Board, the local authority and other interested parties, about providing suitable employment for men becoming redundant at Swindon railway workshops.
§ Mr. Hare
My Local Employment Committee in Swindon, upon which the Railways Board, the local authority and other interests are represented have been discussing this problem and my local officers are in close touch with the management of the workshops. So far redundant workers have found alternative employment without undue difficulty and I am hopeful that they will continue to do so.
§ 88. Mr. F. Noel-Baker
asked the Minister of Labour what special facilities he will provide for redundant Swindon railway workers to re-equip them for appropriate alternative employment.
