HC Deb 25 February 1971 vol 812 cc208-9W
67. Mr. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list for each of the exchange areas in Ayrshire the employers who have intimated to his Department closures and redundancies in the last three months, giving in each case the number of male and female workers involved and the effective date of the closure or redundancy.

Mr. Dudley Smith

Information supplied by individual employers is usually provided for official use only and I would not feel justified in publishing it. During the three months to 19th February, 1971 my Department was notified of redundancies in Ayrshire affecting 995 workers of whom 740 were men and 255 women. Following is an analysis of these figures by Employment Exchange areas:

Exchange area Men Women Total
Irvine 127 78 205
Saltcoats 60 60
Ayr 188 90 278
Cumnock 22 8 30
Kilmarnock 342 56 398
Girvan 1 23 24
TOTAL 740 255 995
