asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many men over 50 years of age are on the unemployed register in Flintshire, and in those exchanges which serve the constituency of East Flintshire.

Mr. Dudley Smith

At July, 1971, the latest date for which information is available, 528 men aged 50 years and over were registered as wholly unemployed in Flintshire. Of these, 261 were registered at the Flint, Holywell, Mold and Shotton Employment Exchanges in whose areas the greater part of the East Flintshire constituency falls.
