HC Deb 24 February 1984 vol 54 c652W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what steps he will take to reduce unemployment in Hertfordshire.

Mr. Alan Clark

There are signs that the Government's policies are succeeding in establishing the economic conditions which will help industries in Hertfordshire and elsewhere to become more competitive and start to expand. In the meantime we are continuing to protect those hardest hit through out special employment and training measures.
