§ 51. Mr. Pentland
asked the Minister of Labour what further measures he intends to take to deal with the problem of unemployed juveniles in the Chester-le-Street constituency area; and whether he will give particulars of these measures.
§ Mr. Green
Eighty-eight young people were registered as unemployed at the Chester-le-Street Youth Employment Office in mid-February as compared with 111 the previous month. Out of the 246 who left school at Christmas, all but 20 had found employment by mid-February. The Youth Employment Service is making every effort to find suitable employment for these young people and will continue to do so.
