HC Deb 28 January 1959 vol 598 c114W
112. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Labour how many school leavers entered the labour market at Christmas 1958: how many of these have been placed in employment; how many secured suitable apprenticeships; how many returned to school; and how many remain unemployed.

Mr. Wood

No statistics are kept of boys and girls who return to school, and I regret that the other figures asked for are not yet available. The placing of Christmas leavers in employment is proceeding satisfactorily though it is taking longer than in recent years.
