asked the Minister of Labour how many supervisory, secretarial, clerical, executive, managerial and professional vacancies were filled through employment exchanges in each of the years 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, and 1966 how many such filled vacancies in each of these categories were in Government Ministries or departments; and how the number of those that were compared with the number filled through private employment agencies.
