§ Sir L. Plummer
asked the Minister of Labour the figure of registered unemployed persons living in Deptford and registered at the local employment exchange at the last convenient date: and what were the figures a year ago.
§ Mr. Hare
The number of unemployed persons registered at Deptford Employment Exchange and Youth Employment Office at 16th January, 1961, was 1,061 compared with 1,115 at 11th January, 1960. It is not possible to say how many of these were living in Deptford, although probably the great majority were.
