HC Deb 01 April 1993 vol 222 c369W
24. Mr. Cann

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the relationship between the Budget measures for investment and unemployment levels.

Mr. Portillo

The Budget measures provide further help for business arid the unemployed in the early stages of recovery. Together with the autumn statement measures, the improvement in competitiveness from sterling's depreciation, and the recent cuts in interest rates., they provide an excellent environment for investment and exports.

The Government's commitment to sound public finances and low inflation provides a firm foundation for sustainable growth and the lasting creation of new jobs in the medium term.
