§ Mr. Litterick
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many adolescents under the age of 18 years are currently registered as being unemployed in the City of Birmingham.
§ Mr. Golding
The precise information is not available but on 8th April 1976, 5,948 persons under the age of 20 were registered as unemployed in the City of Birmingham. Of these, 1,195 were registered with the Careers Service and it is probable that these would include the bulk of the under-18s unemployed.
