§ Mr. Lang
[holding answer 3 May 1988]: The Government can best improve the employment prospects of Glasgow, Maryhill, and of Scotland as a whole, by the creation of a healthy and vigorous economy. That is precisely what the Government are doing.
In March 1984 there were 7,443 unemployed claimants in the Glasgow, Maryhill parliamentary constituency. The corresponding figure in March 1988 was 7,300.
