HC Deb 18 December 1980 vol 996 c290W
Mr. Carter-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will have discussions with employers in the steel industry with a view to protecting disabled workers from the effects of demanning; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Marshall

It is for employers themselves, in consultation where appropriate with their employees or then- representatives, to decide which of their workers will be affected by demanning in the steel industry.
