HC Deb 10 June 1959 vol 606 cc98-9W
73. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Labour, in view of the bulge in the school population and the likelihood that a higher than usual proportion of children reaching their fifteenth birthdays have stayed on at school till the end of the school year because of the lack of jobs, what special steps he is taking to cope with the large number of school leavers who will be applying for jobs in the early autumn.

Mr. Iain Macleod

The Youth Employment Service is well aware of the position and will, as always, do everything it can to place these young people in employment with the least possible delay. I am glad to think that this work will go on in the expectation of an expansion of economic activity.
