HC Deb 22 February 1965 vol 707 cc2-3W
43. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Minister of Labour what representations he has received from Lep Transport Limited about the proposed closure of its Doncaster factory; what reply he has sent; and what action he is taking regarding the 150 men who will be made redundant.

Mr. Marsh

I have received a letter from Mr. Bollon, Branch Manager of the Doncaster factory, expressing concern for the future of the employees there.

I am replying today to Mr. Bollon telling him that I have passed a copy of his letter to the Minister of Defence for the Army and that the facilities of my Department will be available to all those who need our assistance. In general, the prospects of other employment in the area are good.
