HC Deb 17 November 1981 vol 13 c71W
29. Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what percentage of 1981 school leavers in Greater London other than those taking further or higher education is now employed.

Mr. Alison

It is not possible to give an answer in the form requested. The Department of Education and Science estimates some 80,000 young people left school in Greater London this year for employment, and the number of unemployed school leavers in October in Greater London was 39,092.
