HC Deb 29 April 1969 vol 782 cc210-1W
Mr. Mayhew

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what assessments she has made of future employment prospects in South-East London, including Thamesmead; and what action she is taking to ensure full employment in the area in view of the closure of factories.

Mr. Harold Walker

My Department has the employment situation in South-East London, as in other areas, continually under review. The impact of factory closures in South-East London is lessened by the wide diversity of industry and the extensive travel-to-work facilities available.
