§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many persons, both male and female, were placed in employment by the Workington jobcentre in the last month for which statistics are available.
§ Mr. Alison
Workington jobcentre placed 102 people—55 males and 47 females—in the four-week period ending 11 March 1982, the latest date for which statistics are available.
There is likely to have been a substantial number of people who found jobs in the area otherwise than through the jobcentre. Nationally, the Manpower Services Commission has estimated from a 1977 survey that about a quarter of all placings are made through its offices.
