I do not believe that that is the case. In any event, the hon. Gentleman will know that the Yorkshire coalfields and North Humberside have now been made an intermediate area. There are many factors affecting the level of employment relative to March, 1966. These factors include such things as the point in the cycle which we had reached in March, 1966, an increase in the number of people self-employed, and an increase in the number of people staying at school. All these are factors in the situation.
