HC Deb 02 March 1977 vol 927 c229W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations Her Majesty's Government will make to the Governments of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania about the situation of British employees of East African Airways following nationalisation of the corporation by those Governments.

Mr. Rowlands

I am naturally concerned that the interests of the British employees of the East African Airways Corporation, which ceased operation in January, should be fully protected. Her Majesty's Government will keep an active watch on developments and consider what further action is necessary. I am hopeful that a settlement will be reached in discussions in which the trade unions concerned are taking part. Recourse may be possible to the provisions of the United Kingdom Employment Protection Act.
