HC Deb 09 July 1975 vol 895 c180W
Mr. Gordon Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the number of days lost in production through labour disputes in Scotland, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow in the last five years, inclusive and exclusive of local government and expressed in respect of principal branches of industrial activity; and what are the figures of days lost as percentages of the insured population in each relevant area.

Mr. Booth

Statistics about stoppages are not compiled for individual local areas. A broad industrial analysis for Scotland as a whole, however, is published each year in theDepartment of Employment Gazette. The following table shows, for the years 1970–74, the number of working days lost in broad industry groups, including and excluding local government service (Minimum List Heading 906 of the Standard Industrial Classification). The total number of working days lost in each year is also expressed as the number of working days lost per 1,000 employees.
