HC Deb 26 January 1970 vol 794 c233W
49. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Minister of Technology if he will conduct an inquiry into the reasons for the accelerated decline in employment in the Scottish jute industry over the past 12 months.

Dr. Ernest A. Davies

No. The employment situation in the jute industry has been under continuous scrutiny for several months and has been the subject of discussions between leaders of both sides of the industry and officials of my Ministry.
