§ Mr. Bryan
Not all redundancies are notified to my Department, but notifications of redundancies involving 6,335 people have so far been recorded as due to occur in the Manchester travel-to-work area in the year 1972. Employment prospects in Manchester will benefit from an upturn in the national economy which the Government's massive measures will achieve.
