HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c112W
78. Mr. Norman Atkinson

asked the Paymaster General whether Her Majesty's Government plan any further measures to assist the long-term unemployed beyond those announced on 20 May, Official Report, column 145.

Mr. Lang

The full range of help available to the long-term unemployed is set out in our "Action for Jobs" booklet. We regularly review all schemes carefully to ensure that they meet their objectives.

90. Mr. Tom Cox

asked the Paymaster General if he will list the policies of his Department to help unemployed people over the age of 50 years into employment.

Mr. Lang

I refer the hon. Member to my reply on 18 March at column179. Older workers can benefit from most of the schemes outlined in "Action for Jobs".
