§ Mr. Litterick
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many jobs have been lost in the United Kingdom as a result of the closure or partial closure of plants in Great Britain and the transfer of the order book or work load of those factories to plants and enterprises in other EEC member countries.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
I have been asked to reply.
The allocation of work between factories is a normal function of management. The evidence available to me does not suggest that any net loss of jobs to the United Kingdom has been significant.
