If ever there was an inadequate response to the serious problems of unemployment it was the speech of the Leader of the Opposition yesterday. I ant disappointed that the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Varley) has not replied to the challenge that I issued on Mr. Livingstone. Of course, it would be better if real, proper jobs could be provided for all young people. That is our intention. [HON. MEMBERS: "When?"] One of the ways in which we can help towards that situation is to see that they are better trained to take jobs.
