HC Deb 20 May 1981 vol 5 cc102-3W
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.
