HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 c37W
90. Mr. Popplewell

asked the Minister of Labour what alternative employment his regional office has available for the 229 men who are to become unemployed in October when the Parsons Marine Turbine Co. Ltd., Newcastle-upon-Tyne, closes down.

91. Mr. Short

asked the Minister of Labour what steps he is taking to offset redundancy at Parson's Marine Turbine Co. Ltd., Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Mr. Whitelaw

I understand that about 100 men may become redundant at these works by October. In general, the prospects of finding alternative employment for them are reasonably good, but there may be difficulty in individual cases. The full facilities of our Department will be available to any who seek our help.
