§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many commercial airline pilots are at present unemployed.
§ Mr. Booth:
In September 1974, 318 unemployed people in Great Britain were registered for employment as aircraft flight deck officers. I regret that separate figures are not available for pilots or for commercial airlines. Owing to industrial action at local offices of the Employment Service Agency the normal quarterly analysis of the unemployed by occupation is not available for December 1974.
