§ Mr. Stokes
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what were the unemployment figures for men and women in 424W Halesowen and Stourbridge at the most recent count, compared with the figures for one year ago.
§ Mr. John Fraser
The most recent information available is contained in the reply which I gave to the hon. Member on 9th December 1974.—[Vol. 883, c.17–19.] Owing in industrial action at local offices of the Employment Service Agency, figures for December 1974 and January 1975 are not available.
