HC Deb 12 March 1963 vol 673 c136W
73. Mr. Darling

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the consultations he has had with the Guest. Keen and Nettlefold Group, following its take-over of Ambrose Shardlow and Co., Ltd. regarding the effects of the change of ownership on industrial production and employment in the Sheffield area; and what assurances he has been given in this regard.

Mr. D. Price

It is my right hon. Friend's understanding that, should such a take-over take place, the existing works of Ambrose Shardlow and Co. will be run as production units as before, and under the same management.
