HC Deb 11 November 1966 vol 735 cc389-90W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Minister of Labour how many employees will lose their jobs when the firm of Mirrlees Watson in Scotland Street, Glasgow, closes down; and what provision is being made for their continued employment.

Mr. Gunter

Nearly 500 workers are employed by this firm. Jobs will be available for about half these workers either with an associated local firm or a new firm which has succeeded Mirrlees Watson. My employment officers will help to place the remainder.
