§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what special plans he has in mind to replace the net loss of 27,000 male jobs lost in Wales in the 15 months up to 1st June, 1971.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
There has been a continuous decline in the number of male employees in employment in Wales since June, 1964. The Government have already taken measures to stimulate demand, to secure a sustained growth in output and to increase public expenditure on infrastructure. These measures will improve prospects for employment in Wales, and elsewhere.
