Unemployment: Wellingborough

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what his most recent estimate is of the number of young people in (a) Wellingborough constituency and (b) the UK who are not in employment, education or training. (310668)

Due to small sample sizes, we cannot provide robust estimates of young people not in employment, education or training for geographical areas smaller than local education authorities. Therefore we are unable to provide estimates for parliamentary constituency areas.

England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland each have different measures of people not in employment, education and training, therefore we are unable to produce an estimate for the UK as a whole.

The number of young people not in employment, education or training in England is published by DCSF every quarter. The latest information can be found here:

Figures for other UK countries can be obtained from the relevant devolved administrations.
