HC Deb 24 March 1982 vol 20 cc376-7W
Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will take steps to ensure that when factories intend to close down adequate notice and warning is given to the appropriate trades unions, local authorities and others directly concerned.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

In general, adequate notice is given about impending closures. In the case of Burroughs at Glenrothes, for example, the company has given almost 10 months' notice.
