§ 57. Mr. Malcolm MacPherson
asked the Minister of Labour the figures of unemployment and under-employment, respectively, in the Falkirk area, expressed as percentages of the insured population.
§ Mr. Watkinson
Percentage rates cannot be furnished separately for Falkirk but only for the Falkirk, Grangemouth and Bonnybridge areas combined. At those employment exchanges the percentage wholly unemployed on 10th May, was 3.0 per cent., and the percentage temporarily stopped on that day was 2.0 per cent. The latter figure represents persons who were not at work on Monday. 10th May. It does not cover persons who were at work on that day, but were stood off on other days of the week.
