HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c191W

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what action he is taking to avert the redundancies at David Brown Foundry, Penistone; and whether he will make a statement.


The main form of assistance which my Department can offer in cases of threatened redundancy is the temporary employment subsidy, and the firm concerned is fully aware of this scheme. The Manpower Services Commission will do all it can to help any workers who are made redundant to find or train for new jobs.
