§ 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
