§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity how many copies of the pamphlet "Dealing with Redundancies" have been distributed to employers and on what basis; how many have been distributed to trade unions and at what levels of trade union organisation; and whether shop stewards will be provided with this document.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
An initial distribution of 70,000 copies has been made, covering managements of firms with over 250 employees, regional and similar offices of unions, and employer and worker members of my Department's Local Employment Committees. Supplies have been provided for circulation by the C.B.I, and T.U.C. for circulation to their member organisations, and my Department will be glad to meet requests from individual unions or employers' organisations for distribution through their channels. Copies of the booklet are also available on request at local offices of my Department.
