Today in Blackpool, the trade unions propose their response to the rapidly-changing face of British industry. In the last of three programmes on the impact on jobs of new technologies, Judith Hann and Peter Williams set out some of the vital issues raised by the arrival of microprocessors and the new Industrial Revolution they have brought with them, while Michael Rodd reports from Blackpool on today's debate. Many of our traditional industries are in deepening trouble as jobs are lost both to automated equipment and to foreign competition. Has the government a duty to preserve jobs by subsidising companies struggling to survive?
Tonight's programme sets out the issues facing the Secretary of State for Industry, Sir Keith Joseph , and questions him on the issues raised at Blackpool and in the two previous programmes. Sir Leslie Murphy , chairman of the National Enterprise Board, leading industrialist Sir Hector Laing and David Lea , of the TUC, are the other participants in a debate which attempts to assess Britain's best chances of preserving the Right to Work into the 80s.
