§ 11. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether Penistone, in view of the closing of the iron and steel works in that town, as part of the rationalisation of the iron and steel trade in that town may be classified as a distressed area and share in such facilities as are available for distressed areas?
My right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour has decided that, in the circumstances, the facilities that have been available to workpeople in certain depressed areas to enable them to take employment elsewhere shall be extended to the unemployed workpeople at Penistone.
