PACE operations for JJ & HB Cashmere

Jan '10
Commenting on the recently announced job losses in Innerleithen, Liberal Democrat Tweeddale, Ettrick and Lauderdale MSP Jeremy Purvis said:

“I have been informed by the Administrator of JJ & HB Cashmere Mills that the workforce is being reduced to 40 staff, resulting in over 100 redundancies. This is devastating for all the affected staff in Innerleithen with the concern for those in Galashiels and Coatbridge also.

“I have worked hard with the local agencies to press the case for a certain future for all jobs and I am deeply sorry for the constituents affected by the announcement today. The retention of the 40 staff allows continued discussions to take place between interested parties and the administrator about keeping ongoing operations. I will make every effort to try and help secure a future for production locally.

“I am making contact with the appropriate bodies today concerning the PACE operations (Partnership Action for Continuing Employment). This is to ensure that all of the staff affected are aware of the support and advice that is available to them. I will also offer any support I can to anybody affected.

“The focus of my work is also to support the efforts to secure continuing operation and I am absolutely committed to do this.”

Scottish Liberal Democrats
