HC Deb 01 August 1962 vol 664 cc100-1W
Mr. Coulson

asked the Minister of Labour what is the estimated number of school-leavers in Kingston-upon-Hull at the end of the summer term; and whether he expects there to be any difficulty in finding them suitable employment.

Mr. Hare

About 3,000 boys and girls. I am glad to say that all the 1,464 Easter school leavers in Kingston-upon-Hull have already entered employment. It may take rather longer to place all the summer school leavers but the Youth Employment Service will make every effort to assist them.

Mr. Prentice

asked the Minister of Labour what were the numbers and the percentages of school-leavers between 1st April, 1962, and 30th June, 1962, or the nearest convenient dates, who
