HC Deb 09 December 1974 vol 883 cc19-20W
Mr. Normanton

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what evidence he has that university qualified veterinary

and female, currently notified to his Department; and what were the comparable figures for the nearest convenient date in each year from 1970 to 1973 inclusive.

Mr. John Fraser

The following table shows information for the Bournemouth employment office area, which covers the Bournemouth, East constituency. The statistics relate only to vacancies notified to employment offices and careers offices, and are not a measure of total vacancies.

surgeons are finding difficulty in obtaining suitable employment; and how many of those who qualified in 1974 are still without employment.

Mr. John Fraser

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that there is no evidence of this. Nearly 10,000 are registered by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, of whom only 10 are currently registered with the employment service as unemployed, compared with seven a year ago. Of these 10, three qualified in 1974.
