The increases in Civil Service rates of pay since 1st January 1971 vary according to the grades concerned. The following are examples:

§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many persons are registered as unemployed in the five counties of Mid-Wales at the present moment and how many officially notified job vacancies there are in the area.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
In January 1973 there were 2,770 people unemployed and 562 notified vacancies remaining unfilled in the counties of Brecknockshire, Cardiganshire, Merionethshire, Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire. The vacancy figure relates only to notified vacancies remaining unfilled, and does not purport to measure the total unsatisfied demand for labour.
