HC Deb 15 November 1971 vol 826 c64W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the current total of youth unemployment in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dudley Smith

On 11th October, 1971, 4,990 young people were registered as unemployed in Wales. The Government's economic measures, including the incentives to industry in development areas, and the provision of additional training opportunities should help to reduce unemployment amongst young people in Wales.
