§ Mr. Alton
asked the Prime Minister what representations she has received about the employment consequences of the closure of the United Biscuits factory, Binns Road, Liverpool; and whether she will meet the shop stewards committee, local hon. Members and church and civic leaders to discuss these consequences.
§ The Prime Minister
I have received 10 such representations from employees of the United Biscuits factory in Liverpool and one from the hon. Member for Liverpool, Mossley Hill (Mr. Alton). While I am always ready to meet hon. Members to discuss closures in their constituences, I think it is more useful for delegations to see the management of the companies concerned and the responsible departmental Minister.
