§ Mr. Kinnock
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the number of school leavers in July 1978 in Gwent and Wales, respectively, who will be unemployed in September 1978; what were the comparable figures for 1976 and 1977; and how many school leavers in July 1976 and July 1977 in each case are still unemployed in May 1978.
§ Mr. John Morris
I regret that the information is not available in the form suggested. Statistics of unemployed school leavers do not identify the date of leaving school and it is not possible to give any reliable forecast about future levels of employment for school leavers.
