§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he is taking to assist the employment situation in the Buckley area of East Flintshire following the redundancies consequent upon the Allis Chalmers closure in Mold; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
I am studying proposals put forward by Flintshire County Council for improving the employment situation in the whole county, including Buckley. I shall be discussing these with representatives of the council shortly, and I hope that the hon. Members for the county can attend. Efforts are being made to find an alternative use for the Allis Chalmers premises in Mold.
