asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many job vacancies exist in the Belfast travel-to-work area at the latest date; and what were the corresponding figures in May 1979.

It is thought that not all job vacancies are notified to the employment service. However, on 7 January 1983 the number of vacancies which had been notified to the job markets of the employment service in the Belfast travel-to-work area were 427 adults and 117 young persons. The corresponding figures for May 1979 were 1,335 adults and 433 young persons.
