HC Deb 05 June 1991 vol 192 c229W
Mr. Loyden

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to introduce further legislation to protect employees made redundant by closure of businesses.

Mr. Forth

Debts owing to employees whose employers have become insolvent may, within certain limits, be paid by my Department. In the case of statutory redundancy pay, the employee may he paid even where there is no formal insolvency. I have no plans at present for further measures.
