I ask my right hon. Friend to give serious consideration to a debate on unemployment. In view of the factory closures in the North-West—on Merseyside in particular—and in other regions, does not my right hon. Friend think that a debate on unemployment is essential? If we sat on Friday of next week that would extend the time of the House by at least one day for such a debate.
