Mr. Franks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment which local authority direct labour organisations made an operating loss; how much was the loss; what was the turnover of each relevant organisation; and what was the loss as a percentage of turnover for each of the last three years.

Mrs. Rumbold

Information for the years 1982–83 and 1983–84 is available in the Chartered Institute for Public Finance and Accountancy's annual publication "Direct Labour Organisations Statistics". I shall write to my hon. Friend with such information as is available for 1984–85 from those DLO annual reports which have been forwarded to my Department.
