HC Deb 17 October 1975 vol 897 c836W
Mr. Geraint Howells

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the present rate of unemployment in Aberystwyth; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. John Morris

The unemployment rate in the Aberystwyth travel-to-work area in September was 5.7 per cent. The rate for males was 7.3 per cent. and for females 3.3 per cent. All these were below the average for Wales, and below the average for the Welsh Development Area of which Aberystwyth forms a part.
