§ Sir W. Elliott
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the likely number of redundancies in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne area, following the decision of the Chrysler Corporation to reorganise its system of distributorships in the region.
§ Mr. Golding
I understand that Chrysler United Kingdom is currently reviewing its network of vehicle franchises in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne area and that the outcome of this review will not take effect until the end of 1977. It is, therefore, too early to determine what effect, if any, it will have on the area.
