asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the estimated number of unemployed persons registered at the Tottenham, London, offices; what percentage this figure represents; and what are the job classifications of those so registered.

At 10th February, 1,357 unemployed people were recorded at the Tottenham employment office and the Tottenham and Edmonton careers offices. Rates of unemployment can be calculated only for the whole of Greater London, which is regarded as a single travel-to-work area, and at 10th February the rate was 1ยท9 per cent. Detailed occupational analyses of the unemployed are normally made in March, June, September and December, but the information for December 1974 is not available owing to industrial action at local offices of the Employment Service Agency.
