HC Deb 11 March 1971 vol 813 c167W
Mr. Dormand

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what has been the effect, in reducing unemployment in the Easington constituency, of the measures announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 27th October, 1970.

Mr. Anthony Grant

It is too early to make an assessment, but these measures, together with those announced by my center hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 18th February, provide very substantial incentives for the creation of employment in areas such as Easington.
