HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c85W
Mr. Gordon Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will provide a breakdown of defence jobs in Britain by each standard region and for Scotland and Wales.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Details of the regional distribution of United Kingdom Service personnel and MOD civilian staff are published in volume 2 of the "Statement on the Defence Estimates 1985." Estimates of the number of jobs in United Kingdom industry sustained by defence expenditure are derived from generalised statistical information. It is not possible to break these latter estimates down into numbers employed in particular regions.
