HC Deb 21 February 1996 vol 272 c203W
30. Mr. McFall

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment how many young people who have left school and taken up a training place in the last three years are currently classified as(a) unknown and (b) unemployed. [14708]

Mr. Paice

Some 14 per cent. of young people completing youth training in 1994–95 were unemployed six months later. This has fallen from 18 per cent. the previous year and 20 per cent. the year before that.
