Mr. Hayhoe

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the latest figure for the total number of strikes this year; and how this compares by numbers and precentages with the comparable figure for 1970.

Mr. Bryan

The provisional total for stoppages beginning in the first eleven months of this year is 2,075. This compares with 3,786 in the same period of 1970, a decrease of 45 per cent.
