§ Mr. Wood
A detailed analysis according to duration of unemployment is not available for any date later than 15th September. At that date there were 109 unemployed persons on the registers of the Barry Employment Exchange and Youth Employment Office who had been continuously on the registers for 8 to 26 weeks and 107 who had been on the registers for more than 26 weeks. On 17th November there were 744 persons registered as unemployed at these offices, which was 69 more than in October. The rise was largely accounted for by decreased activity in shiprepairing and in building.
