§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish figures showing the numbers of people under the age of 18 years currently registered as unemployed in the Hackney and Shoreditch, the Holloway and King's Cross, and the Camden Town employment office areas, respectively; and what were the numbers at the same time in 1977, 1974 and 1973.
§ Mr. Golding
The information is given in the following table. Because of industrial action by some staff in the Department of Employment Group, figures for January 1974 are not available.
