HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c64W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what steps his Department is taking to respond to the effects of the recent BAT factory closure in Liverpool.

Mr. Nicholls

The services of the local jobcentre will be available to those who lose their jobs at the BAT factory in Liverpool. My Department, through its employment service and Training Agency, operates a wide range of employment, enterprise and training measures to help those made redundant find new jobs, retrain or set up businesses of their own.

I understand that this closure has not yet taken place.
