§ 103. Mrs. McLaughlin
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware of the growing unemployment in Northern Ireland; what consultations he has had with the Northern Ireland Government with a view to preventing a further decrease in employment there; and if he will make a statement as to his future plans for increasing employment in this area.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The Prime Minister of Northern Ireland recently discussed with me the employment situation in Northern Ireland and I am in consultation with my colleagues about any ways in which it may be possible to assist the Government of Northern Ireland in dealing with it.
