HC Deb 28 October 1975 vol 898 c452W
13. Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will consider the introduction of forms of departmental social auditing to ascertain the true costs of redundancies and unemployment to the community.

Mr. Booth

Social auditing considerations are already taken into account in the Government's approach to policies of assisting industry and in measures designed to provide unemployment workers with new jobs and new skills or, as with the temporary employment subsidy schemes, to stave off redundancies.
