HC Deb 11 March 1958 vol 584 c40W
Mr. Body

asked the Minister of Labour how many building trade workers are registered as unemployed in the Basildon new town area; and how many have been registered as unemployed for more than two weeks.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Figures are not available for Basildon new town, but people from Basildon register at the Pit-sea Employment Exchange where, on 17th February, 84 men and boys whose last employment was in the building and civil engineering industries were registered as unemployed. Information about duration of unemployment is not available for individual industries.
