HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c70W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish in the Official Report a table showing the number of female workers who have been made redundant in the wool textile industry for each month since January 1979, and the textile industry as a whole.

Mr. Jim Lester

The information required is not available. The Manpower Services Commission maintains a record of the total number of workers involved in redundancies of 10 or more which have been confirmed as due to occur but the number of female workers is not separately identified.
