asked the Secretary of State for Employment what effect he estimates that the closure of Guy Motors, Wolverhampton, will have on the male unemployment rate in Wolverhampton.

I understand that Guy Motors plant will close in 1982, but it is not possible to give any realistic estimate of the number of men currently employed there who will subsequently register as unemployed in the Wolverhampton travel-to-work area.All the facilities of the Manpower Services Commission will of course be made available to the workers affected to help them find new jobs or to train for fresh employment.
