Redundancies at Dobson & Crowther, report says

The BBC is reporting on its news website this afternoon (Wednesday) that 55 redundancies have been declared at Llangollen's Dobson & Crowther printworks which went into administration yesterday.

For the full story, see: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-north-east-wales-33167417

Meanwhile, earlier today in the House of Commons, Clwyd South MP Susan Elan Jones urged Secretary of State for Wales Stephen Crabb and the Welsh Government to work together to get the best possible outcome for staff at Dobson & Crowther.

Ms Jones' question came after it was announced that the Llangollen printing company had gone into administration.

Speaking afterwards, she said: "This is terrible news for many local families in Llangollen and the nearby areas.

"It is vital that UK Government, Welsh Government, local councils and all the relevant organisations all work together to ensure there is a serious programme of financial and careers support to help the people who have been so badly affected."

  1. It's a pity no one realised that Dobson and Crowther was already a lost cause before all the nonsense with Sainsbury's and the new factory was set in motion. Now 79 people will probably lose their jobs and Llangollen will be disfigured by two empty and very expensive buildings. A tragedy descending into farce.
