HC Deb 01 May 1972 vol 836 c52W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will give a breakdown for all the main professions included in the 265,000 people unemployed, last employed in and listed as financial, professional and miscellaneous services and public administration, and also a regional breakdown, profession by profession.

Mr. Dudley Smith:

The numbers of men and women registered as wholly unemployed are analysed by occupation on a quarterly basis. The figures for Great Britain for December, 1971, were published at pages 169 to 171 of the February, 1972 issue of the Department of Employment Gazette and a regional breakdown of the figures was shown at pages 184 to 189 of the same issue. There is no occupational analysis for the particular industry groups specified.
