§ 10. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the latest figure for the number of women unemployed in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Adam Butler
At 10 March 1983 there were 30,229 unemployed women claiming benefit in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. Bennett
What will the Government do about that, particularly in terms of providing jobs for women in Northern Ireland?
§ Mr. Butler
The Government have just announced important measures to help employment generally in the Province. I am sure that women will take advantage of those measures.
