HC Deb 26 November 1979 vol 974 c435W
Mr. Ray Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many redundancies or job losses have been recorded by his Department since 4 May.

Mr. Jim Lester

I regret that the information as requested is not available. However, I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that, from information available to it, 80,926 redundancies were due to have occurred in Great Britain during the period May 1979 to October 1979.
