HC Deb 09 April 1968 vol 762 cc242-3W
Mr. Bagier

asked the Minister of Technology whether, in view of the fact that the German shipbuilding firm R. Heinstahl, Nordseewerke, Company of Emden is attempting to recruit 1,000 skilled shipyard workers in the North-East to work in Germany, he will press forward with the regrouping of the shipbuilders on the Wear under the Geddes proposals, in order to provide for a more stablised work force in the industry.

Mr. Benn

I have at present nothing to add to the Answer I gave to a Question by my right hon. Friend the Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Willey) on 18th March.—[Vol. 761, c. 13–14.]
