§ 68. Mr. A. J. Williams
asked the Minister of Labour how many youth employment officers there are in Wales; how far this number falls below the establishment; in which areas there are the greatest shortages; and what action he proposes to take to remedy these shortages.
§ Mr. Marsh
The total establishment of youth employment officers in Wales and Monmouthshire is 94. Of these 91 are employed by local education authorities and 3 by my Ministry. Five posts are now vacant, three of them in Cardiff. The local authorities concerned are taking steps to fill these posts. For two of the three vacancies in Cardiff officers have already been appointed and will take up duty within the next few weeks.
