§ Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the President of the Board of Trade what special measures the Government are now taking to create employment in Carmarthenshire, where the rate of unemployment on 10th October was 7.9 per cent.
§ Mr. Jay
I shall continue to encourage the establishment of new industry and the expansion of existing industry by the full use of my powers under the Local40W Employment Acts reinforced by the investment incentives under the Industrial Development Act.
The increase in the rate of unemployment in Carmarthenshire to 7.9 per cent. in October was largely acounted for by temporary stoppages.
