Closure Of Lloydstsb Call Centre - Newcastle

EDM number 1866 in 2002-03, proposed by David Clelland on 04/11/2003.

That this House expresses concern at the news that Lloyds TSB has decided to close its call centre in Newcastle and move the operation to India with the loss of almost 1000 jobs; recognises the importance of such jobs to workers in India but deprecates the exploitation of low paid labour there at the expense of workers in the UK; amd calls upon Her Majesty's Government urgently to review this increasing threat to the jobs of thousands of UK workers who are at a particular disadvantage because of the prevalence of English as a second language in so many countries.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
