HC Deb 21 January 1986 vol 90 c119W
39. Mr. Freud

asked the Paymaster General what criteria he uses to measure the progress of his policy to reduce unemployment.

Mr. Alan Clark

Success in tackling unemployment depends on a strong economy that can generate wealth and new jobs. This is what our policies are designed to achieve and over 700,000 jobs have been created in the past two and a half years.
