HC Deb 22 February 1980 vol 979 c364W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many organisations similar to the Newcastle Trades Council Unemployment Centre have been receiving public funds; and what is the total amount of money which has been paid out in this way.

Mr. King

My Department does not provide funds for any project of a precisely similar nature. However, the urban programme does assist a number of schemes providing advice and services for the unemployed.
