asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many people in (a) the Alyn and Deeside constituency, (b) the travel-to-work area of Shotton, Flint and Rhyl and (c) Wales have been out of work for one, two three and four years and more, respectively.
The age and duration analysis of unemployment has not yet moved to collection on the ward basis which underlies the new travel-to-work areas. The information requested is not therefore available for the Alyn and Deeside constituency or for the Shotton, Flint and Rhyl travel-to-work area.Figures for Wales are as follows:
|Length of time unemployed||Wales|
|One year and over but less than two||30,721|
|Two years and over but less than three||16,969|
|Three years and over but less than four||11,269|
|Four years and over||15,840|
