§ Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the total number of job vacancies in London for the latest date available.
§ Mr. Lee
The following information is in the Library. On 5 June 1987, the number of unfilled vacancies at jobcentres in Greater London was 37,801. These do not represent the total number of vacancies in Greater London. Estimates suggest that nationally about a third of all vacancies are notified to jobcentres, but an equivalent estimate for Greater London is not available.
