Mr. Blair

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

Mr. Needham

The joint manpower watch scheme does not apply to Northern Ireland. The latest manpower figures for local authorities in Northern Ireland give a total of 10,651 at 30 June 1985.
