§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish in the Official Report the number of persons registered for national insurance purposes as self-employed, in each of the district council areas of Wales, or other convenient local areas.
§ Mr. Deakins
I have been asked to reply.
In June 1974 there were approximately 85,000 persons in Wales who were 379W regarded for national insurance purposes as self-employed. This does not include self-employed married women who did not pay contributions or hold national insurance cards. No figures are available for district council or other local areas.
