HC Deb 26 March 1974 vol 871 cc108-9W
Mr. Loyden

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will give early consideration to alleviating the unemployment on Merseyside that now stands at 5.8 per cent.

Mr. Mackenzie

We intend to give high priority to the stimulation of regional development and employment. To this end we shall look carefully at the needs of areas, such as Merseyside, which have unacceptably high rates of unemployment.
