HC Deb 07 November 1980 vol 991 cc679-80W
Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish figures showing how many people, in each of the following sectors of the economy, have been made redundant during the past 12 months, and what the average redundancy payment has been in each sector; each nationalised industry and British Leyland, local government—showing education and health separately—central Government and private industry.

Mr. Jim Lester

The figures requested are not available. Information is available only on statutory redundancy pay- ments and only by industry order of the Standard Industrial Classification.
