asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many young people in the different employment areas in the Leek parliamentary constituency who left school in 1976 have still not obtained their first job; and how this figure compares with the comparable figure at the same time last year for those who left school in 1975.

I regret that the precise information is not available since the statistics of unemployed school leavers do not identify the date of leaving school. In March, immediately before the first of this year's school leavers entered the employment field, 12 school leavers were registered as unemployed in the area of the Leek and Cheadle careers offices compared with 14 at the corresponding time in 1976.
