Select Committee on Welsh Affairs Minutes of Evidence


Examination of Witnesses (Questions 400 - 402)

WEDNESDAY 2 MAY 2001

SIR BRIAN MOFFAT, MR TONY PEDDER AND MR DAVID JACKSON

  400. I appreciate the sensitivity of the issue, but will the package include, for instance, pre-redundancy training which will offer the opportunity for the company to retain an upskilled workforce should market conditions improve?
  (Sir Brian Moffat) No.

  401. Why not?
  (Sir Brian Moffat) Because we are not allowed to get state aid of that nature. That would be deemed to be state aid. This would be packages for people who have been declared redundant or are under notice of redundancy and under the umbrella of that could take place.

  Mrs Williams: Would it be in order for us to have more information in writing?[5]

Chairman

  402. If you could send us some more information about the training package that would be very useful.
  (Sir Brian Moffat) I can tell you what we have but it has not been developed yet.[6]

  Chairman: I am sorry we have taken longer than you expected. Thank you for coming. I am sure I and my colleagues are sad that the consultation period has not resulted in any job saving but thank you again for coming.
