§ 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.
