HC Deb 20 June 1984 vol 62 c153W
Mr. Hargreaves

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many young people in Hyndburn have never had (a) full-time employment and (b) part-time employment.

Mr. Alan Clark

The following is the available information for unemployed claimants on 10 May in the area covered by the Accrington and Great Harwood jobcentres, which correspond closely to the Hyndburn constituency. The figures relate to the numbers of unemployed school leavers—that is, young people who had not entered employment since terminating full-time education.

Age Number
Under 18 131
18 74
19 and over 111
