§ 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.
