§ Dr. David Clark
asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he expects the employees who were employed by Sylo Ltd. in South Shields when it went into liquidation in November 1981 to be paid holiday pay and wages in lieu of notice under the Employment Protection (Consolidation) Act 1978.
§ Mr. Waddington
The employees' claims are being dealt with by the company's liquidator, who has already paid the holiday pay on 8 and 22 February. Within the next few days he hopes to apply to the Department of Employment for funds with which to pay the first batch of notice payments.
