§ 15. Mr. Janner
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to assess the effect of fiscal measures on the level of employment before such measures are implemented.
§ Mr. Janner
Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman's answer mean that before a fiscal measure is implemented there are consultations between the Exchequer and the Department of Employment as to the effect of such a measure upon employment? The Select Committee on Employment understood that that was not the case.
§ Mr. Latham
In assessing fiscal or other measures, will my right hon. and learned Friend consider carefully the job release scheme to see whether it could be extended and improved, in the interests of reducing unemployment?
