§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how the unemployment figures will be computed in July and August in the current year in relation to students who graduate in June and wish to register as unemployed.
§ Mr. Booth
Students who graduate in June and register as unemployed will be included in counts of the unemployed occurring during their period of registration, unless they intend to return to full-time education at the end of the summer vacation, in which case they will be recorded in a separate count from the main count of the unemployed, in accordance with my right hon. Friend's statement of 23rd February.
