HC Deb 24 April 1968 vol 763 c47W
1. Mr. Crouch

asked the President of the Board of Trade what estimate he has made of the cost in a full year per job created of all measures of Government assistance to development areas which are not available in other areas.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Only a proportion of all Government assistance to the development areas is directly related to the creation of fresh employment, and an estimate of the kind described by the hon. Member would not be meaningful.
