§ Mr. McMahon
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many job opportunities are available at jobcentres in Glasgow for school leavers; how many have been available in the Govan jobcentre since March 1980; if he is satisfied with the operations of the centres; and whether he will provide finance for advertising job opportunities on commercial radio throughout the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
Jobcentres do not designate jobs as being specifically for school leavers, for whom advice on jobs is principally the responsibility of the local authority careers services. I am concerned to ensure that jobcentres are operated efficiently. My right hon. Friend has no plans to provide finance specifically for advertsing job opportunities on commercial radio.
