§ Mr. Scholefield Allen
asked the Minister of Labour if he will give an occupational analysis of vacancies remaining unfilled at the Crewe Employment Exchanges and Youth Employment Office, for the latest convenient date, together with the number of unemployed men and women, respectively; what percentage of the estimated total number of employees is unemployed; and what was the national percentage unemployment figure at the same date.
§ Mr. Heath
On 6th April, 1960, there were 472 unfilled vacancies notified for males and 268 for females at Crewe Employment Exchange and Youth Employment Office. An occupational analysis of unfilled vacancies is made only at quarterly intervals. The latest available figures are those contained in my reply to the hon. Member on 5th April. On 11th April, 279 males and 262 females were registered as unemployed at the Crewe Employment Exchange and Youth Employment Office. The percentage rate of unemployment was 19 compared with 1.8 for Great Britain.
