HC Deb 03 February 1972 vol 830 c172W
79. Mr. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many unfilled vacancies there are in the building industry in Scotland.

Mr. Dudley Smith

At 5th January, 539 notified vacancies for jobs in the construction industry remained unfilled in Scotland. There is no obligation on employers to notify their vacancies to my Department. The figure relates only to those vacancies which were notified and remained unfilled on 5th January. It does not purport to measure the total unsatisfied demand for labour in the industry.

Forward to
