HC Deb 28 January 1969 vol 776 c306W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what assessment he has made of the impact of the regional employment premium on the development areas.

Mr. Urwin

It is too early to measure the full impact of the premium, which has been in operation for only a comparatively short time. We are continuing to keep a close watch on the effectiveness of the premium and of other regional measures.
