asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has any plans to take further steps to seek to reduce unemployment in Wales during the next two years, and if he will make a statement.
My aim is to see the best use made of the Government's comprehensive range of policies for tackling the causes and effects of unemployment and generating new jobs in the economy as a whole.
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has any further plans to create new jobs in mid-Wales, and if he will make a statement.
Mid Wales remains eligible for a wide range of Government schemes and initiatives designed to regenerate the economy and improve employment prospects. I am keeping the position under review and am always ready to consider ways of sustaining and expanding the rural economy in Wales.
