§ 47. Mr. Ashton
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what advice is given by his Department to children leaving school who are unable to find a job.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
Careers officers co-operate closely with the schools in giving careers advice to young people before they decide to leave school. The advice given to those for whom no jobs are immediately available will vary according to the personal circumstances, interests and abilities of each individual and according to employment prospects in the area.
