§ 64. Mr. ROSE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions if he is aware that the Hunslet (No. 2) Ordnance Factory is amongst those which the Director of Factories has decided to retain; will he explain why continued dismissals of workmen take place; and will he now state definitely what are the intentions of his Department with reference to the future of the factory?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
This factory is at present engaged in completing work which was in progress at the date of the Armistice. The number of persons employed is reduced from time to time as and when the various stages of manufacture are completed. No decision has yet been arrived at with regard to the future of the factory.
