asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he has to intervene in the dispute that exists at Crosfield Electronics, Holloway Road, London, N.19 and if he will make a statement.

I understand that the dispute arose at the beginning of March, when 300 workers were declared redundant following the company's decision to transfer work from London to Peterborough. All but 40 left within the period of notice given, but those remaining began a sit-in on 28th March. The independent Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service had a meeting with the parties in April, but there is now no scope for intervention since the company was granted an order for possession of the premises.
