HC Deb 19 December 1963 vol 686 cc263-4W
Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Labour how many persons were in civil employment in Barry at the latest convenient date; how this figure compares with the figure for a year ago; and what was the comparable figure in 1951.

Mr. Whitelaw

It is estimated that there were 19,100 employees in employment in the areas of the Barry and Llantwit Major employment exchanges at mid-1962, the latest date for which figures are available, compared with 19,500 at mid-1961 and 17,800 at mid-1951. Separate figures are not available for Barry. Figures for the numbers in civil employment which include the self employed are not available for employment exchange areas.
