HC Deb 18 March 1975 vol 888 c359W
21. Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the percentage of working days lost in Great Britain through industrial action in 1974; and if he will compare this percentage with that for Germany and France for the same period.

Mr. Booth:

Comparative data for 1974 are not yet available. Comparing the number of days lost per 1,000 employees in each of the three countries during 1973, the figures are: United Kingdom, 570 days; France, 330 days; West Germany, 40 days.
