HC Deb 11 February 1980 vol 978 c409W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many men are now in employment in Wales; and how this compares with the position five, 10 and 15 years ago.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

It is provisionally estimated that 690,000 men were in employment in Wales in June 1979. Comparable data for 1965, 1970, and 1975 are 790,000, 721,000 and 698,000 respectively.
