§ 8. Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what proposals she has for increasing the training places at Gov- 1372 ernment training centres in the Yorkshire and Humberside areas.
§ Mr. Wainwright
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that in areas of high unemployment it is difficult to get jobs for men who are physically fit, but extremely difficult to get jobs for the disabled? Will he do more to enable the disabled to be trained so that they can really compete and obtain jobs?
§ Mr. Hooley
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the percentage of unemployment in the Yorkshire and Humberside region has deteriorated continuously vis-à-vis the rest of the country in the last three years? Is it not time that more vigorous action to offset this was taken by the Government?
