HC Deb 24 February 1983 vol 37 c531W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to assess the effect of fiscal measures on the level of employment before such measures are implemented.

Mr. Brittan

All relevant aspects of fiscal measures are considered before they are implemented. The Government's policy is to create the conditions for a sustained rise in output and employment. Monetary and fiscal policies are directed to this end.
