industries, textiles, coal and railways, in 1951, 1960 and 1967, respectively;

(2) what were the numbers employed in Lancashire in manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries, respectively, in 1951, 1960 and 1967.

Mr. Fernyhough

Employment estimates for counties are not available either in total or for separate industries and those for Lancashire could not be produced without excessive cost in staff time.

The following table shows estimates for the North-Western Region, which covers Lancashire, Cheshire and the High Peak district of Derbyshire. The estimates for 1951 are based on the 1948 edition of the standard Industrial Classification; those for 1960 and 1966, the latest date for which information is available, are based on the 1958 edition. In order that the 1951 figures may be compared with estimates for later years, estimates for 1959 on both bases are also given.
