§ Mr. Redmond
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many working days were lost in 1972 through inter-union disputes.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
I regret that the information is not available for 1972 and could only be compiled at disproportionate cost. A new cause analysis was, however, introduced on 1st January 1973. This will enable inter-union disputes to be separately identified in future.
