HC Deb 07 May 1973 vol 856 c39W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many unfilled vacancies are registered in the Kidsgrove employment area; and what was the comparable figure a year ago.

Mr. Dudley Smith

On 4th April 1973, there were 328 unfilled vacancies in the Kidsgrove employment exchange area and on 5th April 1972 there were 58. The statistics relate only to notified vacancies remaining unfilled and do not measure the total unsatisfied demand for labour.
