HC Deb 12 November 1970 vol 806 c216W
29. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what special inquiry has been undertaken recently into the causes of the continuing long-term unemployment amongst young people in South Shields; and what special training facilities are being provided for them.

Mr. Dudley Smith

A survey was recently carried out in Northern Region to discover what proportion of unemployed young people under the age of 18 might be suitable for training. The results of the survey are now being considered, but the proportion was disappointingly low.
