Careers Offices (Vacancies)

Volume 98: debated on Wednesday 4 June 1986

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

asked the Paymaster General if he will list the number of vacancies currently on offer at each careers office and the number of school leavers in each town served.

The following table shows the numbers of unfilled vacancies at careers offices in England and Wales as at 4 April 1986. Data on the numbers of school leavers are not available centrally for areas smaller than local education authorities. I understand that my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Scotland, is replying in respect of vacancies at Scottish careers offices.
