HC Deb 07 March 1995 vol 256 c141W
28. Mr. Merchant

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what assessment he has made of the extent to which the Government's policies are helping long-term unemployed people to find jobs.

Mr. Portillo

I believe that Government policies, to improve the operation of the labour market and to help the unemployed into jobs, have contributed to the fall in the number of long-term unemployed.
