§ 28. Mr. Roger White
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will give details of the rundown of industry in North Kent during the past two years and the effect upon future employment prospects.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
I regret that this information is not available in the form requested since the most recent local employment estimates were for mid-1969. However, I am aware, of redundancies in the cement and paper industries in North Kent. The reduction in employment in these two industries is only one of the factors which will affect future employment prospects in the area.
