HC Deb 23 February 1971 vol 812 c114W
Mr. Wilkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will list the number of work vouchers granted in the Bradford-Shipley area to Commonwealth citizens for each year from 1962 to 1970, inclusive.

Mr. Bryan

The number of employment vouchers 1issued in response to applications made by employers in the areas covered by the Bradford and Shipley employment exchanges was:

Bradford Shipley
1962 37 Nil
1963 98 4
1964 81 12
1965 29 3
1966 34 10
1967 22 1
1968 18 3
1969 13 4
1970 15 3
Vouchers are also issued to holders of certain professional qualifications without an offer of employment. It is not known which particular posts they take up and it is, therefore, not possible to say how many of them settled in Bradford and Shipley during the years in question. The same is true of vouchers issued in Category C till issues in this Category were discontinued in 1965.
