HC Deb 25 January 1972 vol 829 c409W
Mr. William Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many young persons are unemployed in the Coventry employment exchange area; and how many vacancies exist at the latest available date.

Mr. Dudley Smith

Information is not available for this precise area but at January, 1972 the provisional number of young persons registered as unemployed in the somewhat smaller area covered by the Coventry Careers Office was 613, of whom 599 were wholly unemployed and 123 notified vacancies remained unfilled. The vacancy statistics relate only to notified vacancies remaining unfilled and do not purport to measure the total unsatisfied demand for labour.
