Written Answers. - Employment Incentive Scheme.

587.

asked the Minister for Labour if the employment incentive scheme as operated since last year will be continued for this year; and if employers who recruit employees for six months under his scheme can be eligible for further recruitment under the scheme each year.

The employment incentive scheme will continue to operate on the same terms as revised in April 1984. Operation of the scheme is, however, kept under review and, if deemed necessary, amendments may be made to it. Any changes in the scheme will be publicised in good time.
