§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the number of women employed in Alyn and Deeside, Clwyd, and Wales (a) full-time and (b) part-time; and what measures he proposes to get the long-term unemployed back to work. 
§ Mr. Redwood
The latest available information on the number of female employees in Alyn and Deeside is from the 1991 census of employment. This, together with the comparable data for Clwyd and Wales, is given in the following table:
Female employees in employments—September 1991 Thousands Full-time Part-time Alyn and Deeside district 6.5 4.5 Clwyd 34.5 31.3 Wales 250.2 220.1
The Government's policies are aimed at creating the right economic conditions for success—low inflation, sound public finances, markets that work properly, and a minimal regulatory and tax burden on business. That recipe is promoting sustained economic growth.
The training and enterprise councils and the Employment Service provide a wide range of measures to help the long-term unemployed back into work. They include the training for work programme, restart, the job interview guarantee scheme, Workstart and community action.
