HC Deb 03 November 1987 vol 121 c685W
Mr. McAllion

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what are the total number of job vacancies in (a) Dundee, East and (b) Dundee travel-to-work-area, for the latest available date.

Mr. Lang

[pursuant to the reply, 26 October 1987, c33.]: I have been asked to reply.

Vacancy statistics are not available on a parliamentary constituency or travel-to-work area basis. However, the number of vacancies notified in the Dundee jobcentre area and remaining unfilled on 4 September 1987 was 579 (including 84) community programme vacancies). It is estimated that only around one third of all vacancies nationally are notified to jobcentres.

This information is available in the Library.
