Q42. Mr. Hooley

asked the Prime Minister what was the level of unemployment in the travel-to-work area covering her own constituency in May 1979; and what it is now.

The Prime Minister

In the area covered by the Finchley employment office, which corresponds closely to my constituency, the numbers of people registered as unemployed at May 1979 and February 1982 were 1,038 and 2,878, respectively. The figures include school leavers and are not seasonally adjusted.
