§ 45. Mr. McMaster
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department following his recent official visit to Northern Ireland, what proposals he has relating to new Government measures in Great Britain to help reduce the level of unemployment in Northern Ireland and to assist the Government of Northern Ireland in the steps they are taking to promote further industrial development throughout Ulster; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir F. Soskice
During my visit to Northern Ireland, I had valuable informal talks with members of the Government of Northern Ireland and with representatives of many walks of life there. The Government gives continuing co-operation and support to the Government of Northern Ireland in tackling the problem of unemployment there and the forthcoming visits to Northern Ireland by my right hon. Friends the First Secretary of State and the President of the Board of Trade indicate the importance which we attach to concerting the industrial and economic plans of the two Governments aimed at making the fullest use of the industrial and labour resources available in the province.
