§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many employees in Waltham Forest are covered by the operation of wages councils; how many visits were made by the inspectorate to firms in Waltham Forest in 1984; and how many firms were visited.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
Estimates of the number of workers covered by wages councils are available only on a national basis. Statistics relating to the number of visits made by wages inspectors are not collected for areas smaller than wages inspectorate divisions.
