HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 c445W
22. Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many persons are unemployed in Glasgow; and how many job vacancies have been notified.

Mr. John Fraser

In March 1976, 40,541 people were registered as unemployed in the Glasgow travel-to-work area. There were 3,478 notified vacancies remaining unfilled at employment offices and 272 at careers offices in this area. The vacancy statistics relate only to vacancies notified to employment offices and careers offices and are not a measure of total vacancies; because of possible duplication, they should not be added together.
