HC Deb 30 July 1982 vol 28 c793W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what new industries have been set up in Waltham Forest and North-East London, respectively, in the past three years.

Mr. MacGregor

Full information is not available, as firms are under no obligation to notify the Department of their activities. The most recent detailed picture of the industrial structure of local areas is available from the 1978 census of employment which, however, pre-dates the period to which the question relates.
