§ 36. Mr. Alexander
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what percentage of the working population in Nottinghamshire is unemployed at the present time.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
At 8 October, the unemployment rate in Nottinghamshire was 11.3 per cent. The rate is based on the estimated number of employees—employed and unemployed—which differs from the working population in that it excludes members of Her Majesty's Forces and the self-employed.
