Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what jobs have been created and saved by the Government's special measures since 1974.

Mr. Golding

The special measures which have been aimed at creating or saving jobs are the job creation programme; the special temporary employment programme; the small firms employment subsidy; the temporary employment subsidy; and the scheme of short-time working compensation in the clothing, footwear and textiles sectors. About 590,000 jobs have been created or saved under these schemes since the first special measures were introduced in 1975.
