asked the Secretary of State for Employment what were the number of job vacancies notified to jobcentres in the parliamentary constituency of Macclesfield in January; and how this figure compares with January 1978 and 1979.

The following table gives the numbers of notified vacancies remaining unfilled at the dates specified in the area covered by the Macclesfield and Congleton employment offices, which closely corresponds to the Macclesfield parliamentary constituency. Vacancies notified to employment offices are estimated to be about one-third of all vacancies in the country as a whole. Because of possible duplication the figures for employment offices and careers offices should not be added together.
