HC Deb 02 July 1986 vol 100 c570W
Mr. MacKenzie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish in the Official Report a table indicating the current total number of men, women and young people unemployed in the Glasgow, Rutherglen constituency for six months or over, one year or over, and two years or over, respectively; and if he will publish a comparable table for May 1979.

Mr. Rifkind

At 10 April 1986, the latest date for which information is available, the number of men, women and young persons (conventionally 16 and 17-year-olds) who were unemployed in the Glasgow Rutherglen parliamentary constituency and claiming benefit and who had been unemployed for six months or more, is shown in the table. Information on a constituency basis is not available prior to June 1983.

Mr. John MacKay

Between 1 April 1980 and 31 March 1986 the net decrease has been 98.283 hectares.
