§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many people were in employment in Wales in June 1983.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
Estimates of the number of employees in employment are best obtained from the statistics compiled by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment. The most recent revised estimate, which will be published in theEmployment Gazette later in the month, is 893,000. This figure does not include the self-employed.
