§ 45. Mr. Meacher
asked the Secretary of State for Employment for the latest month for which figures are available, how many persons had been unemployed for more than a year; and of these how many were not in receipt of supplementary benefit.
§ Mr. Chichester-Clark:
At 10th January, the latest date for which information is available, 141,973 wholly unemployed people had been registered for more than 52 weeks. I regret that information about the numbers of these who were not in receipt of supplementary benefit is not available.
