asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many unskilled workers had been unemployed for at least six weeks at 31st October, 1971.

I regret that the information is not available. At 11th October, the latest date for which information is available, 521,235 wholly unemployed people had been registered for more than six weeks, but the statistics do not indicate how many of these were registered for employment in unskilled occupations.
