§ 69. Sir John Biggs-Davison
asked the Paymaster General what contribution the Manpower Services Commission is making to the reduction of unemployment through neighbourhood energy projects; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Lang
I am pleased to be able to report that, following discussions between my Department, the110W Manpower Services Commission and the Department of Energy, a national initiative to encourage energy efficiency projects has been established. At the end of May over 250 energy projects were providing about 5,600 jobs for previously long-term unemployed people.
