§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) what is the current total of youth unemployment in Flintshire; and if he will make a statement;
(2) if he will publish the current unemployment figures for young people at exchanges which serve the constituency of East Flintshire.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
On 11th October, 1971, 208 young persons were registered as unemployed in Flintshire, 120 at the Flint Careers Office, which covers the East Flint constituency, and 88 at the Rhyl Careers Office. The provision of additional training opportunities in the county and the Government's various economic measures should help to bring down the level of youth unemployment.
