§ 51. Mr. David Howell
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what studies she is currently undertaking of anticipated labour requirements in the service industries.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
The Manpower Research Unit is at present studying the future manpower needs of the hotel and catering industry. The unit is also studying the effects of computers in offices and the general growth of office employment, both of which, by covering office 289W working in all industries, include a part of every service industry. These latter two studies will also throw light on future manpower requirements.
