§ Mr. Strang
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many notified vacancies there were in the Edinburgh travel-to-work area in each June of the past three years.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher:
The information is set out in the following table.119W
Number of vacancies notified to June 1979 3,161 276 June 1980 2,931 144 June 1981 1,815 48Notes:1. The figures are not a measure of total vacancies but represent only the number of vacancies notified to employment offices and careers offices and remaining unfilled on the day of the count.2. Because of possible duplication the two series should not be added together.
