HC Deb 22 November 1976 vol 919 c1010W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement as to what disciplinary action is proposed as a result of the refusal by civil servants to handle the statistics on numbers of unemployed.

Mr. Booth

I have made clear to the relevant union my concern at the absence of this important statistical information and I am keeping the whole matter under review.
