To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many men aged 16 to 64 years were registered as unemployed on 1 May 1992, 1 May 1991 and 1 May 1990 in(a) the county of Gwent and (b) each of the district councils in Gwent; how many of them had been registered as unemployed for more than six months, more than 12 months, more than two years and more than five years; how many of them have never had a job; and if he will present the figures as a percentage of all economically active males and provide comparable figures and percentages for females.

The unemployment data requested are available from the NOMIS database, which can be accessed on line by House of Commons Library staff.

No local area information is collected centrally on those who have never had a job and unemployment rates for specific age groups are not available.
