HC Deb 06 December 1988 vol 143 c145W
65. Mr. Ian Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he has any plans to meet his European Economic Community counterparts to discuss the levels of unemployment in the Community; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Cope

The next meeting of the Council of Employment Ministers will be on 16 December. The main agenda items are in the area of health and safety at work. We will, of course, be taking every opportunity to raise employment issues and the contribution that the single market can make to employment growth.
