HC Deb 13 November 1967 vol 754 c3W
17. Mr. St. John-Stevas

asked the Minister of Labour what effect the Selective Employment Tax has had in moving labour from service to manufacturing industry.

Mr. Hattersley

It is not possible to distinguish, in the short run, between the employment effects of S.E.T. and the changes in employment patterns resulting from other Government economic measures.
