HC Deb 05 February 1985 vol 72 c484W
26. Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what he is doing to reduce unemployment in Bradford.

Mr. Alan Clark

The Government are concerned about the level of unemployment in Bradford and a substantial number of people in the area are benefiting from our special employment and training measures. We are committed to maintaining our economic policies, which are directed at holding down inflation and public borrowing, while encouraging enterprise, flexibility and competitiveness in industry and the labour market. That is the only way to generate lasting jobs in Bradford and elsewhere.
