HC Deb 03 December 1958 vol 596 c132W
55. Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Labour how many persons in the borough of Barry have been unemployed for two months and six months, respectively; and if he will make a statement about the most recent trend in employment figures in the borough.

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.
