asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list by trade and occupation the registered vacancies in (a) the Greater London area and (b) the Brent travel-to-work area in May 1979 and the latest available date.
Information by age and by duration of unemployment is available for January, April, July and October and table 2 gives the median lengths of time on the register at April 1979 and January 1982, the latest available. Table 3 gives an age breakdown at the same dates.
The figures in the tables include school leavers and are not seasonally adjusted.

[pursuant to his reply, 28 April 1982, c. 293.]: The following table gives an analysis by broad occupational groups of the numbers of notified vacancies remaining unfilled at June 1979 and March 1982. The figures, which are available quarterly, relate to vacancies notified to employment offices but not to careers offices.
Vacancies notified to employment offices are estimated to be about one-third of all vacancies in the economy as a whole.
