HC Deb 22 November 1979 vol 974 c322W
Mr. John Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) if he will list the precise differences in the revised scheme for work permits recently announced, as compared with the previous arrangements;

(2) what is his estimate of the overall size of the annual reduction in work permits, by actual numbers and as a percentage of the whole, which he expects will result from the new arrangements recently announced; and if he will give similar estimates of the expected reductions in particular job categories.

Mr. Jim Lester

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