HC Deb 03 February 1977 vol 925 c252W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what representations he has received to date from industrial, trade union, local authority and other interests (a) supporting and (b) opposing the abolition of regional employment premium.

Mr. Alan Williams

There have been a considerable number of representations, most of them expressing concern at the withdrawal of REP, but I regret that detailed figures are not available.
