HC Deb 18 April 1972 vol 835 cc55-6W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is his present estimate of the number of people employed in the contract cleaning industry; and whether he will consider introducing a separate Standard Industrial Classification for contract cleaning employees.

Mr. Dudley Smith

No such estimate has been made. Estimates for minimum list heading 865 of the Standard Industrial Classification include but do not separately identify contract cleaning employees. The Government have no plans at present to introduce a separate minimum list heading for contract cleaning into the Standard Industrial Classification, which is the responsibility of the Central Statistical Office.
