§ 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.
