HC Deb 28 October 1975 vol 898 cc467-8W
50. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many school leavers in Wolverhampton are now unemployed; how many adult workers, including employees of Norton Villiers Triumph, are unemployed; and what steps he is taking to provide jobs to support viable industries that have failed private management because of lack of investment.

Mr. John Fraser

On 9th October 796 school leavers were unemployed in the Wolverhampton careers office area.

The total number of people aged 20 and over registered as unemployed in the Wolverhampton travel-to-work area was 6,863.

The Department does not maintain unemployment statistics showing the company by whom unemployed people were formerly employed. Matters concerning support for industry are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend The Secretary of State for Industry.
