Quite recently I have seen a report of the proceedings at a deputation which took place either this morning or yesterday' between the company and the representatives of the men, and the repreesentative of the company says: About two-thirds of the staff will be given jobs at other centres, and the remaining one-third will be offered jobs in accordance with their service with the company. I think every displaced worker will be offered employment of some kind. We have done our best.
