Mr. Sargent Mr. Sargent
53. Mr. Sargent asked the Minister for Enterprise and Employment the further plans, if any, he has to establish an advisory committee to monitor the new local employment service; and if he recognises the difficulty for the local employment scheme in handling all types of job opportunities in the absence of a national minimum wage.

Minister for Enterprise and Employment (Mr. R. Bruton) Richard Bruton
Minister for Enterprise and Employment (Mr. R. Bruton): An interdepartmental advisory group consisting of representatives of relevant Government Departments/State Agencies has been set up to advise me on the establishment and ongoing implementation of the new local employment service. While I am conscious of the difficulties that will be faced by local management committees with regard to the task they are taking  on, I am heartened by the approach that is being proposed in the plans I have received so far and am confident that this new service will have a real benefit in terms of its impact on the employment opportunities of unemployed people. However, I do recognise that no single measure in itself can solve the problem of unemployment.
