HC Deb 28 January 1969 vol 776 c308W
Mr. Moyle

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity whether she will provide a code of conduct covering the social consequences of industrial mergers as part of her proposed scheme for industrial relations reform.

Mr. Harold Walker

Guidelines on dealing with problems arising from plant closures and reductions in the labour force are contained in a booklet entitled "Dealing with Redundancies", published by my Department in July, 1968.

My Department's Manpower and Productivity Service will continue to assist companies to develop practices in accordance with these guidelines and to formulate agreed procedures for handling redundancies.
