§ Mr. Iain Macleod
363 persons were registered as wholly unemployed and 5 as temporarily stopped at the 5 employment exchanges in the Carmarthen Parliamentary constituency on 12th November. The corresponding figures on 16th July were 327 and 13. There is of course generally an increase every year between these dates and the hon. Member will be happy to know that the latest figure of unemployment is lower than the November figure for any post-war year with the exception of 1954.
