§ 31. Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many places were found for the young workers scheme during job search week in May.
§ Mr. Alan Clark
I understand from the Institute of Careers Officers, the organisers of job search week, that 7,000 definite job vacancies were offered as a result of the exercise, as well as nearly 8,000 possible jobs. There is, however, no information on the number of those vacancies where the employers propose to seek support under the young workers scheme for the young people they employ.
