§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will give, from information available to him from international sources, the numbers unemployed in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Switzerland, respectively, for January, 1958, and January, 1971, and the figures for the United Kingdom on those dates.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
In the table below figures for countries other than the United Kingdom have been taken from the International Labour Office Year Books and Quarterly Bulletins of Statistics. For each of these countries, information has been shown for January, 1958, for the latest date for which figures can be derived from these sources and for the corresponding month 13 years earlier. For the United Kingdom information has been shown for January, 1958, and January, 1971.
the unemployment statistics are available either by age or occupation, but not by both combined.
