HC Deb 23 May 1978 vol 950 c502W
Mr. Shersby

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what consideration he has given to the effect on employment prospects during the next decade of the development of micro-processors and their use by industry and commerce in ways which will eliminate many jobs; and if he will make a statement on the policy the Government will follow to adapt to the changes which the use of this equipment will cause during the remainder of this century.

Mr. Golding

I shall reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
