§ Mr. Brockway
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many young persons between 15 and 18 years of age in the area of Slough were receiving unemployment benefit during the first weeks of March, 1963, and March, 1962, respectively and how many were receiving National Assistance during the same periods.17W
§ Mr. N. Macpherson
Figures for the first weeks in March are not available, but at 4th February 18 young persons were drawing unemployment benefit at the Slough Youth Employment Office compared with two at the corresponding date last year. No young person was receiving National Assistance at that office on 4th February, 1963, and one young person was doing so a year earlier.
