Ordnance Factories (Redundant Workers)

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Employment – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 3rd July 1957.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Lee:

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that we on this side of the House are extremely worried about the Government's policy towards the Royal Ordnance factories which is causing such widespread redundancies? Is he aware that we have now heard that at least one of these factories is to be sold to private enterprise? Would he ensure that the type of work to be done in that factory will make it possible for those workers who are now working there to be maintained in their jobs if private enterprise takes the factory over?
