asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that on the 19th October, 1955, there were 118,963 vacancies on the books of the employment exchanges and youth employment offices in the London and South Eastern Region; that during 1954 and the first six months of 1955, 554 new industrial building schemes were started in this region; that both vacancies and new industrial schemes in this region alone are greater than in the whole of the Development Areas; and what action he proposes to take to ensure full employment in Development Areas.
§ Sir W. Monckton
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to Question No. 20 in the House today.
