asked the Secretary of State for Employment what estimate he has made of the number of job vacancies for boys and girls which will be available in July 1975.
It is too early to make a reliable estimate. Careers officers are still contacting employers to obtain vacancies for summer school leavers, and these will be shown in the monthly vacancy count immediately preceding the school leaving date.
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the total number of staff employed by his Department and by the Training Services Agency on matters directly concerning youth employment; and, in each case, what are the functions of those so engaged.
I regret that the information could not be obtained in the time available but I will circulate it in the Official Report as soon as possible.
