§ Mr. Rooker
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many job vacancies were notified for toolmakers, in Birmingham and the West Midlands at the latest available date.
§ Mr. Golding
At September 1976, the latest date for which an occupational analysis is available, 27 vacancies for toolmakers, toolfitters and markers out were held by employment offices in the Birmingham travel-to-work area and 97 by employment offices in the West Midlands region. I regret that vacancies for toolmakers alone cannot be identified separately. These figures relate only to vacancies notified to employment offices and do not include those notified to careers offices.
