§ 2. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he took to satisfy himself that the allocation by him to Messrs. Hawker Aircraft Limited of the factory at Squires Gate, Blackpool, would not result in redundancy and unemployment arising at this firm's factories in the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames; and whether he will give an assurance that no such redundancy and unemployment will in fact result.
§ Sir H. Shawcross
The allocation of the Blackpool factory to Messrs. Hawker Aircraft Ltd., was made to enable them to increase their production, and I understand that it is the intention of the Company to continue to use their existing capacity and labour at Kingston-upon-Thames to the fullest extent.
