HC Deb 09 March 1972 vol 832 c381W
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.
