HC Deb 10 February 1977 vol 925 cc783-4W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish the regional figures for registered unemployed toolmakers, by age.

Mr. Golding

The following table shows for September 1976, the latest date for which an occupational analysis is available, the numbers of unemployed people registered at employment offices in each region of Great Britain for employment as toolmakers, tool fitters and markers out. I regret that information is not available for toolmakers alone and that an age analysis of these figures is not compiled.

Toolmakers, Tool Fitters, Markers-out
Scotland 187
Wales 44
East Anglia 26
East Midlands 79
North 53
North West 167
South East 338
South West 125
West Midlands 379
Yorkshire and Humberside 60
Great Britain 1,458
