HC Deb 30 March 1982 vol 21 c80W
24. Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how he estimates that proposals outlined in the Budget will affect the level of unemployment.

Mr. Alison

My right hon. and learned Friend's Budget contributes to the Government's strategy of fostering conditions for sustainable growth. The help given to business will lay the foundation for more durable and productive jobs. The new scheme to be introduced by the Manpower Services Commission will also provide useful work for many who would otherwise have remained unemployed.
