Q153. Mr. Devlin

To ask the Prime Minister what proposals Her Majesty's Government have to foster enterprise and create employment in the north of England.

The Government will continue to operate policies which will reinforce the successes already achieved in the northern region, not least the fall in unemployment of nearly 22 per cent. in the period since December 1986.
