HC Deb 18 February 1986 vol 92 c137W
21. Mr. Rost

asked the Paymaster General whether he will make a statement on the employment prospects for graduates.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

For the fourth year in succession the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services and the Standing Conference of Employers of Graduates report an increase in the number of vacancies available for people graduating later this year. More employers are seeking to recruit graduates, many of them smaller and medium-sized companies. Job prospects for graduates entering the labour market in 1986 are therefore good, especially if they are prepared to be flexible and mobile.
