HC Deb 07 November 1966 vol 735 c223W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give, for the latest convenient stated date, the number of workers who have been dismissed or placed on short time since 20th July, 1966; to what extent these have been re-employed in essential and export industries; and if he will make a statement on the efforts made by his Department to achieve this redeployment of labour.

Mr. Gunter

I regret that the figures requested are not available. On 24th October I gave the House full details of the efforts being made by my Department to achieve redeployment.
