HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c75W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the annual cost, in taxes forgone and national insurance, and in extra social security payments, of the number of unemployed people in London for the latest date available.

Mr. Major

I regret that regional figures for benefit expenditure on the unemployed are not available. It is not possible to estimate the revenue forgone.
