HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c109W
67. Mr. Watts

asked the Paymaster General how many long-term unemployed people have been assisted to find jobs or training in Slough and nationally since job counselling became a nationwide scheme.

Mr. Lang

Counselling of long-term unemployed people is part of the restart programme. Although this will become a national programme on 1 July, some localities will start earlier, including Slough on 16 June.

At this early stage, results are not yet available.
