HC Deb 22 July 1986 vol 102 c180W
73. Mr. Latham

asked the Paymaster General whether he will make a statement on progress on the action for jobs programme.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

In the first three months of the action for jobs campaign. We estimate that some 1.25 million members of the public have picked up a copy of the "Action for Jobs" booklet. In addition, some 500,000 copies have been directly distributed. Our research shows that the booklet has been very positively received both in terms of its clarity and layout and its usefulness in telling people about the wide range of opportunities provided by our employment, training and enterprise measures.
