HC Deb 23 February 1965 vol 707 c91W
Mr. Kershaw

asked the Minister of Labour if he will now give details of the retraining facilities available to aircraft workers forced to leave their industry.

Mr. Gunter

The 26 Government training centres are available to redundant aircraft workers though experience suggests that most of them will be absorbed directly by industry which will provide any necessary re-training.

Mr. James Johnson

asked the Minister of Labour how many aircraft workers engaged upon the P1154 have been declared redundant by the Hawker Siddeley Company at Brough; and what steps are being taken to secure suitable alternative employment upon Humberside.

Mr. Gunter

105, of whom 15 have accepted re-employment by the firm. The 90 design staff discharged were invited to register at their local employment exchange with a view to securing alternative employment and 37 have so far done so.
