HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 c120W
122. Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give separately the number of persons recorded as wholly unemployed in Ilkeston, Heanor, Ripley and Alfreton at the latest convenient date; how the percentage of this number compares with the national average; what is the number of men and women working short time in these towns; and what is the number of unfilled vacancies.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The table below gives the information desired so far as it is available:

present notified demand qualifications not possessed by those who are registered as unemployed at Wick. I hope that the temporarily stopped workers, who are nearly a quarter of the total, will resume work when weather conditions improve and that additional opportunities in outdoor work will arise in due course.
