§ Mr. Ralph Howell
asked the Prime Minister which Minister is responsible for co-ordination of the many different income maintenance schemes and other special measures devised by different Government Departments in connection with unemployment.
§ The Prime Minister
Responsibility for these schemes and measures lies primarily with my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Social Services and Employment and the Chancellor of the Exchequer. There are arrangements to ensure that the activities of Departments are co-ordinated.
