HC Deb 03 February 1972 vol 830 c163W
53. Mr. Oswald

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will introduce measures to alleviate unemployment within the Edinburgh exchange areas.

Mr. Dudley Smith

The Edinburgh employment exchange area is in an intermediate area. The Government have taken extensive measures to stimulate the economy of the country as a whole and of the assisted areas in particular. I am confident these measures will help to alleviate unemployment in Edinburgh.
