§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish figures to show, at the latest available date, the number of notified redundancies in Scotland since May 1979.
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
There are no comprehensive statistics on redundancies. However, the number of jobs expected to be lost in redundancies involving 10 or more workers notified to the Manpower Services Commission as due to occur in Scotland between May 1979 and November 1982—the latest date for which firm figures are available—was 190,988.
