§ 51. Mr. Edelman
asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what action he is taking to maintain the Baginton Works of the Avro Whitworth company in being as a going concern complete with plant and labour force, and to arrange for substitute work of whatever kind to be introduced in place of the cancelled aviation orders.
§ Mr. Albu
In so far as there are special problems for workers at Baginton of particular grades of skill, they will be covered by the urgent survey of such problems I have already mentioned in answering my right hon. Friend the Member for Hitchin (Mrs. Shirley Williams) earlier today. But, in general, there are conditions of some labour shortage in the Coventry/Birmingham area.
