HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c209W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he proposes to take in order to reduce the high level of unemployment in Fraserburgh and Peterhead.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

The best means of reducing unemployment in Fraserburgh and Peterhead, as elsewhere, lies in holding firmly to our present strategy for restoring competitiveness to industry. We are making substantial help available to assist viable enterprises and we have expanded the special employment and training measures to help those people unable to get a job.
