HC Deb 11 June 1985 vol 80 c398W
22. Sir John Farr

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will expand facilities for the retraining of adults to take up skilled employment in the hosiery and knitwear industry.

Mr. Peter Morrison

I am aware of the recruitment difficulties reported by the hosiery and knitwear industry. These must be primarily for the industry to resolve but, following a question from my hon. Friend, the member for Rutland and Melton (Mr. Latham), I asked the Manpower Services Commission to report on the problems in the Leicester area. I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as this report is available.
