§ 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.
