HC Deb 13 November 1967 vol 754 c8W
59. Miss Herbison

asked the Minister of Labour what he proposes to do to provide work for 130 men and 50 women who have been declared redundant at the paper mill at Caldercruix.

Mr. Fernyhough

Arrangements have been made to interview and register the workers this week. Everything possible will be done to help them find other employment.

62. Mr. Hooley

asked the Minister of Labour what action he proposes to take to find jobs for 460 men who will be made redundant after Christmas by the closure of the Associated Electrical Industries factory at Petershill, near Glasgow.

Mr. Fernyhough

We are already interviewing workers at the factory and have made special approaches on their behalf to employers in the Glasgow area. The response has been encouraging so far.
