24. Dr. J. Dickson Mahon
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what fresh initiatives he proposes to take this year to reduce the level of unemployment in Scotland.
§ Mr. Younger
We are making additional resources available this year for the youth opportunities programme and have asked the Manpower Services Commission to work out details for a new scheme to help the long-term unemployed. Other special employment and training measures will be considered as part of the Government's annual review of the measures. The Budget also contained a number of important measures to help industry.
