HC Deb 05 December 1979 vol 975 cc212-3W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if it is still the policy of his Department that local labour should be used so far as is practicable for the construction of the new district general hospital at Bangor, in view of the fact that KTA Construction Ltd. has brought on to the site six non-specialist labourers from Nottingham.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Yes: and the great bulk of the labour force has always been local. The decision in particular instances, however, rests with the contractor.
