§ Mr. Fernyhough
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what are the job prospects on South Tyneside for the boys and girls who will be leaving school at the end of July.
§ Mr. John Fraser
It is still too early to make reliable estimates. The number of vacancies immediately available will be shown in the monthly count preceding the school leaving date. But the process of settling school leavers into employment normally extends over the period, July to November.
