29. Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many redundancies, male and female, have been notified to him in the county of Midlothian since July, 1970; and what assistance his Department gave in providing further employment.

Mr. Dudley Smith

Redundancies in the County of Midlothian (excluding the City of Edinburgh), involving 1,430 males and 470 females, were notified to my Department during the period 1st July, 1970, to 20th July, 1971. Local employment staff have made every effort to assist those concerned by providing information and advice about other jobs and training opportunities and, where appropriate, by advance interviews by job teams and special canvasses for vacancies.
