HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 c24W
Mr. Dell

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what firms have notified to him redundancies within the Merseyside Development Area since 18th June, 1970; and how many redundancies were involved in each case.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Redundancies are normally notified by employers to the Department of Employment. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment has advised me that he would not feel justified in publishing information provided for official use.
