HC Deb 28 January 1971 vol 810 cc170-1W
Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the total number of stoppages and disputes in 1970, and of these how many were wage disputes, employment and redundancy disputes, disciplinary disputes, and disputes involving trade union status, respectively; and how these figures and percentages compare with those for each of the previous five years.

Mr. Bryan

Following is the information:

due to strike action in the period January, 1969, to January, 1970.

Mr. Bryan

The number of working days lost due to industrial disputes in 1969, in the establishments where the disputes occurred, was about one-tenth of 1 per cent. of the estimated total number of man-days available in the United Kingdom.
