HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c364W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list service industries in which he expects employment to expand in the future; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Rees

It would be unrealistic to try to predict the employment prospects of particular industries. Employment in the services sector has grown to 14.6 million over the last 10 years, and is continuing to contribute to an improvement in the overall employment position.
