§ 14. Mr. Biffen
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what are the expected consequences for unemployment arising from the implementation of Cmnd 6151, "Attack on Inflation".
§ Mr. Booth
Success in reducing the rate of inflation will help to improve employment prospects by restoring business confidence, promoting investment and increasing export competitiveness. It will also enable the Government to employ effectively all the weapons at their disposal to bring down the present unacceptable level of unemployment.
§ 20. Mr. Newton
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what estimate he has made of the effect on unemployment in the winter of 1975–76 of the Government's proposals for attacking inflation.
