§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if, in view of the sharp rise in unemployment in the Deeside travel-to-work area, he will set up a Welsh Office task force, headed by a Welsh Office Minister, for the Shotton and Buckly areas of Clwyd, with a view to 183W reviewing both the unemployment and new job situations, and with local government and trade union representation on the task force; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
No. I remain of the view that the present arrangements for monitoring and discussing developments in the area work well and should be continued.
