§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many textile workers are unemployed in Dundee; and 641W how many registered vacancies exist for employment in the textile industry in Dundee.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
On 8 May 1980, the latest date for which this information is available, 1,076 people who last worked in the textile industry were registered as unemployed in Dundee. On 2 May, 13 vacancies in the textile industry were recorded in Dundee. The vacancy figures relate only to vacancies notified to the employment office and remaining unfilled; they do not purport to be a measure of all vacancies in the textile industry in Dundee.
