HC Deb 11 July 1928 vol 219 cc2224-5

asked the Minister of Labour the number of lads and young women under 21 years of age who have been placed in employment through Bridgeton, Parkhead, and Springburn Employment Exchanges, respectively, during the last 12 months, and the total number registered as unemployed at present?


Separate statistics are only available in respect of juveniles under 18 years of age. As the reply includes a number of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
