§ 70. Mr. Morris
asked the Minister of Labour how many children are leaving school in the Aberavon constituency or in the nearest equivalent area, in July, 1962; what steps he has taken to ensure their early employment; how many children who left school at Easter, 1962, are still unemployed; and whether he will make a statement on the general prospects for youth employment in the area.
§ Mr. Hare
About 380 boys and girls are expected to leave school this summer in the Port Talbot Youth Employment Office area which covers the greater part of the constituency. Six out of a total of 303 who left school at Easter were still unemployed at mid-July. The Youth Employment Service will give all possible help to these young people and to those who are leaving school this summer.
