§ 27. Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will give the percentage of registered unemployed at the Mexborough and Wombwell employment exchanges, respectively, at the latest available date; and if he will also give the figures for youths under the age of 18 years.
§ Mr. Golding
At 13th April, the unemployment rates for the Mexborough and Goldthorpe travel-to-work area and for the Barnsley travel-to-work area—which includes Wombwell—were 9.5 and 6.1 per cent. respectively.
