HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 c204W
Miss Quennell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what is the pattern of unemployment among school leavers in the Petersfield constituency; how it compares with that of last year; and what she anticipates will be the pattern during the coming winter.

Mr. Fernyhough

On 11th November, 1968, in the Petersfield, Alton and Bordon Youth Employment Office areas, which cover the greater part of the Petersfield constituency, 5 summer school leavers were still registered for first employment out of 562 known to the Youth Employment Service. In November, 1967 the corresponding number was 1 out of 573. I hope that the few remaining summer leavers will soon find employment.
