HC Deb 19 December 1966 vol 738 c206W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Minister of Labour, in view of the fact that over 22,000 unemployed are on the professional and executive register, and only 1,836 have been found jobs in the last three months, what new action he is taking to find these men work.

Mr. Gunter

On 7th December, 1966, there were 24,159 people on the Professional and Executive Register, but only 10,915 of these were unemployed. Over 2,000 were placed in jobs during the past three months and nearly 8,000 are placed each year. Constant efforts are made to bring the service's usefulness to the notice of employers.
