HC Deb 12 February 1980 vol 978 c592W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the total number of persons employed by Norfolk county council in each quarter of 1979 and also show the numbers in each of the principal categories.

Mr. King

This information is not available to the Government. I suggest that my hon. Friend approaches the local authority concerned. For the future, however, I am glad to say that by agreement with the local authority associations the joint manpower watch figures, published quarterly, will from March 1980 onwards include totals for individual authorities.
