§ Mr Richard Wainwright
asked the Secretary of State for Employment to what date the latest published detail from the annual census of employment relates; and whether he has plans to make more up-to-date details available.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
[pursuant to his reply, 10 March 1980]: The results of the June 1977 census of employment for Great Britain as a whole were published in Employment Gazette at the end of February 1980. The results for the standard regions and the United Kingdom will be published in the March 1980 issue. Compilation of the June 1978 results began recently and it is hoped that they will be published by the end of this year.
