HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 c238W
Mr. George Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what proposals he has to reduce the worsening unemployment in Wales; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The current unemployment situation in Wales is almost exactly the same as it was in January in each of the last four years. I am confident that our policies for dealing with the situation will be more effective than those of the previous administration.
