HC Deb 12 June 1974 vol 874 c580W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many employees were in employment in Caernarvonshire in June and December of each year since and including 1964.

Mr. John Fraser

Estimates of the numbers employed are made for each midyear and the most recent are for June 1972. Following is the information available—that is, the numbers employed in the nearest corresponding employment office areas:

Estimated number of employees in employment in Caernarvonshire
June 1964 39
June 1965 40
June 1966 39
June 1967 35
June 1968 35
June 1969 36
June 1970 35
June 1971 (a) 34
(b) 37
June 1972 38

The estimates for June 1971 (a) and earlier dates are based on counts of national insurance cards; those for June 1971 (b) and June 1972 are from the annual censuses of employment. Little significance should be attached to small changes from one year to another.
