§ 47. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Labour how many industrial workers left Aberdeen and obtained work in England during the last twelve months; and how many of these have since returned to work in Aberdeen.
§ Mr. Green
I have no information about the total number of industrial workers who left Aberdeen to obtain work in England during the last twelve months, but during the year ended 13th June, 1962, the Aberdeen Employment Exchange placed 478 men and 3 women in jobs in England. I cannot say how many have since returned to work in Aberdeen, but during the year the Exchange placed 6,475 men and women in local jobs.
