HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 cc76-7W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will set out the figures of wholly unemployed and unfilled vacancies at the Woolwich employment exchange for each of the last 12 months.

Mr. Golding

Following is the information:

and what percentage of the United Kingdom work force is employed by agencies.

Mr. Golding

I regret that the information is not available. My Department's employment statistics are analysed according to the minimum list headings of the Standard Industrial Classification. The numbers employed by agencies are included in the minimum list heading appropriate to the activity concerned and are not distinguished separately. Thus the numbers employed by employment agencies are included in "Other Business Services", MLH 865.
