HC Deb 23 March 1982 vol 20 cc295-6W
Q58. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Prime Minister how many people who have been out of work for 12 months or more got jobs in the last seven-day period for which figures are available.

The Prime Minister

The information is not available. The statistics of those people leaving the register are not analysed by duration of unemployment. Recently, an average of over 280,000 people who were on the register for employment have left it each month, mainly for jobs or training. These figures do not include those people who have been registered with the careers offices or the PER.
