HC Deb 20 April 1964 vol 693 cc131-2W
Mr. Harper

asked the Minister of Labour how many boys and girls left school at Easter in the Borough of Castleford; how many of these had been found employment before leaving; how many have found employment since leaving; and how many are still unemployed.

Mr. Whitelaw

On 13th April, the total number of Easter school-leavers known to the Youth Emloyment Service at Castleford was 318. Detailed figures are not available to show how many found employment before or after leaving school, but the Youth Employment Service estimates that more than half were placed or found work before leaving. Fourteen Easter leavers were still registered for first employment on 13th April.
