HC Deb 18 March 1980 vol 981 c176W
33. Mr. Cryer

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the total number of redundancies declared since May 1979 and the number of new jobs created since that date to the most recent practicable date.

Mr. Jim Lester

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the number of workers involved in redundancies affecting 10 or more employees and notified as due to occur throughout Great Britain between May 1979 and February 1980 was 181,622. Comprehensive information on the creation of new jobs is not available.
