HC Deb 20 April 1972 vol 835 c140W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many males are unemployed in the Newport, Monmouthshire, employment exchange area; and how many male vacancies existed at the latest available date.

Mr. Dudley Smith

At 10th April, the provisional number of males registered as unemployed in the area covered by the Newport and Newports Docks Employment Exchanges was 2,672. At 5th April, 86 notified vacancies for males remained unfilled. The vacancy figure relates only to notified vacancies remaining unfilled and does not purport to measure the total unsatisfied demand for labour.
