§ 61. Mr. Willey
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the ratio of wholly unemployed to outstanding 437W vacancies in the Wearside area at the latest available date.
§ Mr. Bryan
At June, 1971, there were in the Wearside area 3.4 notified vacancies to every hundred persons registered as wholly unemployed. There is no obligation on employers to notify their vacancies to my Department. The vacancy statistics relate only to those vacancies which are notified and remain unfilled on certain dates, and do not purport to measure the total unsatisfied demand for labour.
