HC Deb 27 January 1964 vol 688 c1W
14. Mr. Brewis

asked the Minister of Labour what loss of employment he expects to be caused in creameries in the south-west of Scotland by the shortage of milk for manufacturing purposes; and what action he is taking to safeguard employment.

Mr. Whitelaw

In the counties of Dumfries, Kirkcudbright and Wigtown one employer has informed our local officers that 13 workers have been temporarily suspended because of a shortage of milk but it is hoped that these will be re-employed within 2 to 4 weeks. We know of no other threat to employment in the industry in the area.
