HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 c18W
Miss Devlin

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will give an assurance that his proposals for the restructuring of the aircraft industry in Belfast will not adversely affect the employment prospects of the area.

Mr. Corfield

The Government's very considerable support for Short Brothers has, of course, been based to a large measure on the Company's contribution to employment in Northern Ireland and the present proposals for reconstruction continue to reflect this.
