asked the Minister of Labour if he will make a statement on the actual and prospective unemployment among the granite workers of the Trevor-Llithfaen district of Caernarvonshire; and, in particular, what steps he proposes to take to remedy the situation.

Seventeen granite workers are registered as unemployed at Pwllheli Employment Exchange, and it is expected that a further number will be discharged from two quarries within the next few weeks. My local officers are doing what they can to find other employment for the redundant workers, but I fear that immediate prospects are not good. My right hon. and learned Friend is in touch with his right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade, who will do what he can to provide additional employment opportunities in the area.
