§ Mr. Graham
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many are registered out of work at each benefit office in Renfrew West and Inverclyde constituency; and how many were registered out of work in June 1983.
§ Mr. Lang
The information is not readily available in the form requested. However, on 14 May 1987 (the latest date for which information is available) and 9 June 1983 the number of unemployed claimants in the Renfrew West and Inverclyde parliamentary constituency totalled 3,632 and 3,472 respectively. The figures are not comparable due to the changes which have taken place in the compilation of the statistics.275W
