§ Mr. Godber
The following is the information:
Estimated numbers of employees in employment in the Shipley Employment Exchange area (which includes Bingley) Mid-1951 Mid-1963 Extractive industries (agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining and quarrying) 300 200 Manufacturing industries 15,900 14,800 Construction industry 1,600 1,300 Other industries and services 5,2006 600 Total 23,000 22,900
NOTES 1. Figures are available for the midyear only; those for mid-1954 are not yet available.
2. Because of changes in the Standard Industrial Classification effective from mid-1959 accurate comparisons cannot be made in the various categories between mid-1951 and mid-1963. For example, motor-repairing, boot and shoe repairing, wholesale bottling and production and printing of cinematograph film were deleted from the list of manufacturing industries and added to the list of other industries and services.
