HC Deb 05 December 1972 vol 847 cc359-60W
Mr. Bidwell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will take special measures to safeguard workers against unemployment when decisions are made by multi-national companies to close United Kingdom plants.

Mr. Dudley Smith

No. I see no need to discriminate either in favour of such workers as against others who may become redundant, or against foreign-owned firms giving employment in the United Kingdom.
