HC Deb 22 May 1979 vol 967 c107W
Mr. Stan Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what immediate plans he has to improve employment prospects for the school leavers in 1979 within the Preston travel-to-work area.

Mr. Jim Lester

It is the Government's determination to create the right climate for more and more permanent employment. The part that can be played by the youth opportunities programme and community industry in helping unemployed school leavers find permanent jobs is at present under review.
