HC Deb 20 July 1964 vol 699 c3W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the proposed closing of the Associated Electrical Industries factory at Trent Vale, Stoke-on-Trent; and what arrangements he is making so that the workpeople may be engaged on the manufacture of similar products.

Mr. Whitelaw

I am aware of the proposed closure. Our local officers have already interviewed the workers at the factory and will do all they can to find suitable alternative employment for those who seek our assistance. The prospects for these workpeople are reasonably good.
