asked the Secretary of State for Employment what information he has as to how many people leaving school in the year 1983–84 obtained jobs within six months of leaving school; and how many obtained jobs after spending some time on a youth training course.

Comprehensive information of the type requested is being gathered in the special studies I referred to in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Banbury (Mr. Baldry) on 18 February, at columns 347–8. Information is also being obtained from surveys of young people leaving the youth training scheme, but results so far available from these surveys relate principally to young people who left school before the year 1983–84.
