HC Deb 27 June 1975 vol 894 c248W
Mr. Watkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the estimated effect on unemployment of a cut of £1,000 million, £2,000 million and £3,000 million in public expenditure.

Mr. Booth

The effect of changes on the level of public expenditure on unemployment varies according to the composition and timing of the changes. No simple estimate can be given.
