Mr. Charles R. Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Employment, further to his letter of 18 June to the right hon. Member for Manchester, Openshaw, if he will identify the steps that have now been taken to prevent misuse by employers of the short-time working compensation scheme.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Employers are now required to sign an undertaking at the time of application that they will inform my Department if they have any intention to declare redundancies.
