HC Deb 13 December 1962 vol 669 cc101-2W
Q11. Mr. Milne

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the rise in unemployment in the Blyth constituency and throughout the North-East has not been halted, he will take immediate steps to alleviate the position.

The Prime Minister

The full range of facilities under the Local Employment Act is available in the Blyth and Seaton Delaval Exchange Areas, and an advance factory is being built at Cramlington in the hon. Member's constituency. Many other areas in the North-East are also scheduled as development districts under the Local Employment Act.

Q13. Mr. McMaster

asked the Prime Minister whether, in considering the measures which the Government proposes to take to meet the recent increase in unemployment in Great Britain, he will pay particular attention to the difficulties facing Northern Ireland, where these problems are persistent and severe.
