HC Deb 15 November 1968 vol 773 c159W
Mr. Alison

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what evidence is now available that grants made under the regional employment premium have been self-financing, as proposed in paragraphs 31–35 of the publication, The Development Areas, issued by his Department in 1957.

Mr. Shore

Little evidence can be expected about the precise effects of the premium so early in its life.
