§ Mr. David Marshall
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his estimate of the number of unemployed young males and females in the Glasgow, Shettleston constituency and of the number of jobs, excluding YTS, available to them.
§ Mr. Lang
On 13 October 1988 (the latest date for which information is available) there were 1,248 male and 500 female unemployed claimants under the age of 25 in the Glasgow, Shettleston parliamentary constituency. Vacancy statistics are not available on a parliamentary constituency or age basis. However, the total numbers of vacancies notified and remaining unfilled on 7 October 1988 at the Glasgow, Central and Parkhead jobcentres, which inter alia serve residents of the Glasgow, Shettleston parliamentary constituency, were 1,379 and 445 respectively. It is estimated that only around one third of all vacancies nationally are notified to jobcentres.
