HC Deb 17 November 1981 vol 13 c72W
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.
