HC Deb 23 March 1927 vol 204 c372
25. Mr. LUMLEY

asked the Minister of Labour what percentage of juveniles who registered for employment obtained employment in 1926; and what percentage of these had good prospects of permanency?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Arthur Steel-Maitland)

I regret that the information asked for is not available. The only figure I can give is the percentage of vacancies filled to vacancies notified, namely, 82.


Cannot the right hon. Gentleman collect information from the juvenile Employment Exchanges?


I am not certain whether it would be possible, but I know that in any case it would be a matter of some difficulty. I have some figures which do not amount to actual percentages, and all that information I will gladly show to the hon. Member if he wishes.
