§ 64. Mr. Simon Mahon
asked the President of the Board of Trade what provision has been, or is to be, made to re-absorb redundant personnel in Bootle in view of the degree of redundancy taking place; what further new jobs in North Merseyside are to be provided; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
The full facilities of the Department of Employment and Productivity are available to workers who may be declared redundant from any company. 15,000 jobs are expected to accrue over the next four years from known industrial developments in North Merseyside. The Board of Trade will continue its efforts to assist industrial development in the area.
