HC Deb 05 February 1985 vol 72 c491W
60. Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has any new initiatives to place before the European Economic Community Employment Ministers to reduce unemployment.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

My right hon. Friend will be meeting colleagues from other member states later this week. He will be suggesting that in the social affairs field the Community should concentrate on proposals directly relevant to the task of job generation.
