HC Deb 19 May 1981 vol 5 cc60-1W
Mr. Winnick

asked the Prime Minister if she and other Ministers will meet those taking part in the people's march against unemployment from Liverpool to London; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

I can understand the frustration arising from unemployment which causes people to support the march. But actions of this kind contribute nothing to the real task which faces us, that of improving our industrial performance so as to create more jobs on a permanent basis. No useful purpose would therefore be served if I were to meet those taking part in the march.
