HC Deb 04 July 1978 vol 953 c104W
24. Mr. Michael Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what measures he is taking to help the re-employment of those people made redundant by the British Steel Corporation's plant closures.

Mr. Golding

The Manpower Services Commission, which is responsible for the resettlement of redundant workers, will do all it can to help those workers affected by the British Steel Corporation's plant closures to find new jobs or train for alternative employment. They are helped by European Coal and Steel Community loans at preferential rates of interest which are available to companies providing new jobs in areas affected by redundancies in the steel industry.
