HC Deb 28 November 1974 vol 882 cc204-5W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, for greater understanding of his Budget Statement, he will define the level of unemployment which becomes "mass unemployment", referred to in column 258, OFFICIAL REPORT, 12th November 1974.

Mr. Dell

The severity of an unemployment situation depends upon a wide range of factors, including the numbers of unemployed not on the register, the regional distribution and the average duration of unemployment.
