HC Deb 07 March 1986 vol 93 c289W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many young people in Wales who have followed Manpower Services Commission YTSs, as a percentage of the total number each year since their inception, have found full-time employment.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Information is not available on this basis. Until October 1985 the only information available came from a 15 per cent. sample survey of leavers between July and September 1984. This showed that three months after leaving, 49 per cent. had entered full-time employment. Since July 1985 a monthly 100 per cent. follow-up is carried out, the first survey results being available in October 1985. The results were as follows:

Month of leaving Percentage in a full-time job
April and May 1985 43
April to June 1985 43
April to July 1985 45
April to August 1985 47
April to September 1985 46
