HC Deb 25 November 1974 vol 882 c49W
Mr. Sedgemore

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish his definition of full employment, and estimate what the current level of unemployment would be if there were full employment.

Mr. John Fraser

Full employment is best defined as a situation in which an unemployed person can obtain a suitable job without undue delay. It does not admit of precise definition in quantitative terms.
