Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Labour how many of the 28,000 boys and girls registered as unemployed on 17th August are now in employment?
No statistics are available directly relating to this point. There are, however, grounds for concluding that the majority of those registered as unemployed in August shortly after leaving school have been found employment.
When will the further figures be available? Could my right hon. Friend say in which part of the country these young people are living—whether in industrial areas?
I could not answer that without notice.
What is the minimum age at which boys and girls are entitled to register at the exchanges?
Immediately they leave school.
