HC Deb 21 December 1982 vol 34 c437W
19. Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if the Government will take special measures on Merseyside to reduce unemployment.

Mr. Waddington

Merseyside already has the benefit of more Government incentives to stimulate employment opportunities than any other area in Great Britain. The best way of helping all those who are unemployed on Merseyside and throughout the country is to get the economy right. Our success in bringing down inflation and interest rates will provide the basis of a sustained recovery.
