Cammell Laird Continues To Struggle; Cuts 330 More Jobs

August 2, 2001

Struggling shipbuilder Cammell Laird Plc is to cut a further 330 U.K. jobs on top of over 600 job cuts set in motion earlier this year after it entered into receivership following a series of cancelled orders.

Accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), acting as receivers for the group, said on Thursday that 153 jobs would go at Cammell's Birkenhead plant in northwest England.

It said 166 job cuts will also take place at the company's Tyneside plant in northeast England, while 11 workers will also be made redundant at the nearby Teesside yard.
