HC Deb 03 February 1984 vol 53 cc405-6W
Mr. Meacher

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services in which towns in England and Wales the current unemployment review of people between the ages of 18 and 25 years is being carried out; and with what results.

Dr. Boyson

Unemployment review officers currently interview a proportion of unemployed people between the ages of 18 and 50 years in all areas of Great Britain. However records are not kept in the form which distinguishes between the different age-groups. The experiment to which I referred in my reply to the hon. Member for Dunfermline, East (Mr. Brown) on 31 January—[Vol. 53, c.125–27]—has been designed to provide information in due course about the advantages which may be derived from providing help by way of extra unemployment review to people in the 18 to 24 age-group. This experiment will take place in areas covered by the following offices:

  • Sunderland South ILO
  • Hexham ILO
