§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has in mind for absorbing personnel made redundant by the winding-up of the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
We do not know at this stage how many people will need alternative employment. However, my officials are in close touch with the Home Department and all the resources of my Department are readily available to those who do need our help. Our services include advance interviewing, special canvasses of employers, opportunities for training or retraining and assistance to move to employment elsewhere, as appropriate.
