HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 c41W
Mr. Anthony Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many work days were lost as a result of industrial disputes in each of the last four years in each of the assisted areas and the non-assisted areas; and if he will express this as a percentage of the working population in such areas.

Mr. Golding

Statistics about industrial stoppages are not compiled in respect of the assisted areas. The analysis requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
