§ 65. Sir Dudley Smith
asked the Paymaster General what new initiatives he proposes to help the skilled and professionally qualified unemployed to obtain work.
§ Mr. Lang
There is a wide variety of existing help available for skilled and professionally qualified unemployed people from the Manpower Services Commission employment division, including the professional and executive recruitment service, and from the training division. Access to all this help is provided by jobcentres.
In addition, jobcentres are operating a pilot programme of counselling interviews for long-term unemployed people in nine locations throughout the country.
