§ Mr. Strang
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many job vacancies there were in the Edinburgh travel-to-work area in July 1982.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
There were 1,439 vacancies notified to employment offices and 114 to careers offices in the Edinburgh travel-to-work area remaining unfilled on 2 July 1982. The measure of vacancies covers only vacancies notified to employment offices and careers offices and remaining unfilled on the day of the count, and does not purport to be a measure of all vacancies in the area.
