asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what proposals he has to secure the continued employment of persons now employed in the Operational Signal Equipment Depot, Funtingdon, near Hambrook, Sussex, when it closes on 31st March.

This depot is being closed as an economy measure. It will be possible to absorb into Admiralty employment elsewhere some 20 of the existing industrial staff but it will be necessary to dispense with the services of the remainder of the employees if the savings aimed at are to be achieved. The Ministry of Labour and National Service are being informed of the impending closure.
