asked the Minister of Labour what was the number of unemployed who had signed on at the employment exchanges of Oldbury and Halesowen, respectively, at the last available date; and what was the number of school leavers there who were out of employment.

The Minister of Labour (Mr. John Hare)

On 14th January, 1963, 748 people, including six school leavers, were registered as unemployed at the Oldbury Employment Exchange, and 441 persons, including 12 school leavers, at the Halesowen Employment Exchange.

Mr. Moyle

What does the Minister propose to do to help the young people and school leavers particularly to obtain suitable employment as soon as possible?

I understand that the employment prospects for young people are quite good. I hope that we shall be able to find employment for them.
