HC Deb 06 March 1958 vol 583 c152W
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.
