HC Deb 19 April 1983 vol 41 c65W
59. Sir Marcus Kimball

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if, in view of the readiness of many parishes to bring forward projects for the painting of ecclesiastical edifices to provide work for the community programme, he will ensure that clearance of these projects by the British Decorators Association is not protracted.

Mr. Alison

The British Decorators' Association is an independent body. I hope that its members recognise the benefits which temporary work carried out under the community programme guidelines brings to people who have been unemployed for some time and clear projects as quickly as possible.
