I welcome the steps taken so far by the Government to deal with temporary unemployment and so forth. However, is the Minister aware that on the Labour Benches there is great concern about the level of unemployment? Will he and other members of the Government reflect that what is required to change the situation is a radical alteration of course towards major reflation as quickly as possible? If he is still considering public expenditure cuts in the years ahead, does he not agree that such cuts will do nothing to help employment?
