§ 50. Sir C. Osborne
asked the Minister of Labour how many people are working short-time or part-time, in addition to those unemployed, and how many have ceased to work overtime in the last twelve months.
§ Mr. Green
At the end of April, 102,300 operatives in manufacturing industry were working short-time. I regret that comparable figures are not available for part-time workers. At the same date the number of operatives working overtime in manufacturing industry was 1,613,500, or 210,000 less than in May, 1961. Figures for April, 1961, are not available.
