HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c99W
16. Mr. Freud

asked the Paymaster General if he estimates that the proposed clean-up campaign will create any full-time employment.

Mr. Lang

As I said in my earlier reply to the hon. Member for Gordon (Mr. Bruce), it is estimated that the new environmental improvement initiative will initially provide work for up to 5,000 long-term unemployed people, and of these about 25 per cent. will be full-time workers.
