§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what has been the percentage of those employed on the youth opportunities programme going on into full-time employment in Dundee and Scotland in the latest available year.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
Information is not available in the form requested. According to a survey carried out between August and September 1980, 59.3 per cent. of the young people who had entered the youth opportunities programme in Scotland in September and October 1979 had obtained full-time employment by the time of the survey and a further 11.0 per cent. had gone on to full-time education or training. Separate figures are not available for individual areas within Scotland.
