75. Mr. Jay

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further steps, within their administrative powers and responsibilities, the Government propose to take to reduce unemployment in Northern Ireland from its present record post-war level.

Mr. Brooke

In addition to the vigorous action the Government are taking to reduce unemployment generally in the United Kingdom, special measures to deal with the unemployment problem in Northern Ireland are being taken along the lines indicated in the debate on 22nd November last, following the report of the Joint Working Party on the Economy of Northern Ireland.
