HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c39W
Mr. Blair

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will place in the Library copies of the quarterly joint local authority manpower watch for Wales from the first count to the latest.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

Separate returns for Wales have only been issued for the September 1981 quarter and subsequent quarters. Copies are already available in the Library. Previous to that a joint return for England and Wales was published every quarter from the inception of the watch in March 1975 and copies of these are in the Library. I am arranging for a set of quarterly manpower figures for Wales alone, covering the period of joint publication, to be placed in the Library.
