§ 37. Mr. Jeger
asked the Minister of Labour, in view of the high unemployment rate of 6.6 per cent. in Thorne, which compares with 2.4 per cent. nationally, what special action he proposes to take to find employment in that area for men, women, juveniles and registered disabled who are seeking work.
§ Mr. Hare
I shall do as I have just said. I shall do all I can to help to place as many people as possible. The hon. Gentleman must not, I think, be too gloomy about the prospects. The economy is expanding, and I think that there will be an improvement in the position in his constitutency as well as elsewhere.
