§ Mr. MacGregor
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many applications are on the register of Professional and Executive Recruitment at the latest available date; and of these how many have expressed an interest in taking jobs overseas.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that 94,964 men and women were 479W enrolled with Professional and Executive Recruitment on 5th March 1976. At the time of their enrolment, and in answer to a specific question on the enrolment form, 69 per cent. had stated their unwillingness to consider overseas employment and 31 per cent.—29,500—said they were prepared to consider such possibilities.
