HC Deb 04 July 1983 vol 45 c8W
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.
