HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 c79W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many, and what percentage, of the United Kingdom work force he estimates work on a seasonal basis; what are the reasons concerned; and in which major industries are such seasonal workers employed.

Mr. Golding

In the General Household Survey, covering Great Britain only, in 1973 about 3 per cent. of the economically active population described themselves as either seasonal workers or persons who worked for part of the year only, but it is not possible to say how many of these were seasonal workers as such or to give information about the seasons or industries concerned.
