asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) what is the total number of unemployed males and females, skilled and unskilled, in the Newton parliamentary constituency currently notified to his Department; and what were the comparable figures for the same date last year;(2) what is the total number of job vacancies, male and female, skilled and unskilled, in the Newton parliamentary constituency currently notified to his Department; and what were the comparable figures for the same date last year.

Statistics are not available in the precise form requested but the following table shows an analysis by occupational group of the data for employment offices at September 1974 and September 1973. The figures relate to the area covered by the Golborne, Irlam, Newton-le-Willows and Warrington employment offices, which includes most of the Newton constituency and also covers the Warrington constituency. The vacancy statistics relate only to vacancies notified to employment offices and are not a measure of total vacancies. Owing to industrial action at local offices of the Employment Service Agency the normal occupational analysis for December 1974 is not available.
