HC Deb 05 July 1961 vol 643 c116W
46. Mr. Milne

asked the Minister of Labour how many people on long-term unemployment have been found jobs in the Blyth, Bedlington and Seaton Valley areas in the last six months.

Mr. Green

During the six months ended 7th June, 1961, the Blyth, Bedlington Station and Seaton Delaval Employment Exchanges filled 1,030 vacancies in their areas. I regret it is not possible to analyse those placed according to the duration of their unemployment.
