45. Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what were the numbers of unemployed men, women, girls and boys in Plymouth and district in June, 1968, 1969, 1970 and 1971.

Mr. Dudley Smith

The information is as follows:

1,579 unemployed, including 1,103 on short-time working; at Falmouth where there are 510 unemployed, including 32 on short-time working; and at Camborne where there are 513 unemployed, including two on short-time working; in view of the fact that the Camborne numbers are now 85 per cent. higher than those of June, 1970.

Mr. Dudley Smith

My Department's local officers will continue to do all they can through the employment and training services to help people who are seeking new jobs.
