HC Deb 02 March 1981 vol 1000 c52W
Mr. Kaufman

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, pursuant to his written answer to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar), 19 February, Official Report, c. 219–21, he will provide comparable information for each of the districts in Greater Manchester and also for Greater Manchester council.

Mr. King

The manpower statistics which the local authorities make available to central Government are intended for the publication of aggregated information only. The information requested can therefore be provided only by the authorities concerned. Under the provisions of the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 arrangements are being made for the regular publication of full manpower information locally by individual authorities.
