88. Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

asked the Paymaster General what job-finding services are offered by his Department or the Manpower Services Commission to unemployed persons travelling as members of a commune.

Mr. Lang

The full range of assistance provided by the Manpower Services Commission is available, principally through jobcentres, to all unemployed persons alike on an equal basis. This includes providing information about jobs available locally and in other districts (including information about employers recruiting casual labour); advice on employment matters and schemes run by the Department of Employment and Manpower Services Commission; advice on and assistance with training and retraining; and normal job placing services.
