61. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Minister of Labour how many young people, who left school last summer, are still out of work in the north-west and nationally.

Mr. Wood

It is not possible to identify school leavers separately, but on 13th October, 1958, 975 boys and 374 girls, registered as unemployed in the north western region, were recorded as having had no previous employment. The corresponding national figures were 4,342 and 2,549 girls.
