asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the number of vacancies notified to employment offices and career offices, respectively, in the Northern region; and what were the corresponding numbers at the same date in 1978 and 1979.

The following table gives the numbers of notified vacancies remaining unfilled at employment offices and careers offices in the Northern region at February each year from 1978.

At employment offices
February 19789,143
February 19799,647
February 19807,177
At careers offices
February 1978633
February 1979503
February 1980367
The statistics relate only to vacancies notified to employment offices and careers offices; 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.
