§ Dr. Summerskill
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is the total number of employees in Calderdale who during September and October were (a) registered as being on short-time working and (b) included in the temporary short-time working scheme.
§ Mr. Jim Lester
Statistics of short-time working are not available below standard regional level. However, in the Calder-dale metropolitan district there were 3,594 employees working short-time under the temporary short-time working compensation (TSTWC) scheme in September 1980. The figures for October are not yet available.
