HC Deb 20 January 1977 vol 924 cc314-5W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what are the numbers of unemployed young people under 21 years of age in the Middlesbrough area at the most recent date; and how many of them are already on special Government schemes.

Mr. Golding

I regret that this information is not available in precisely the form requested. The latest statistics analysing the unemployed by age groups were collected in July 1976 when the number under age 20 in the Middlesbrough area was 2,662. This total includes all persons registered with both the careers service and the Employment Service Agency. Persons recruited under the various special measures for alleviating unemployment are not included in statistics of the unemployed.
