HC Deb 10 February 1972 vol 830 c431W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment to what extent the measures taken by Her Majesty's Government to expand the economy have now assisted in reducing unemployment in the London Borough of Newham.

Mr. Dudley Smith

I cannot estimate to what level unemployment in Newham would have risen had the Government not taken extensive measures to stimulate the economy.
