§ Mr. Robertson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what were the unemployment figures for males and females, respectively, in the Paisley area in February 1974; and how that compares with the present position.
§ Mr. Golding
At February 1974, 1,506 males and 328 females were registered as unemployed in the Paisley employment office area compared with 2,148 males and 880 females at October 1976. Because of industrial action by some staff in the Department of Employment group information for November 1976 is not available.
