§ 59. Mr. Willey
asked the Minister of Aviation Supply whether he will ensure the maintenance of continuous and full employment at the Rolls-Royce factories in Sunderland.
§ Mr. David Price
I cannot give assurances of this kind since in setting up Rolls-Royce (1971) Ltd. our aim is that it should operate as nearly as possible as a commercial concern with the minimum of Government control. This, in our view, will offer the best prospects in the longer term for the new company's success and for security of employment in its various establishments.
