HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c104W
27. Ms. Clare Short

asked the Paymaster General what is the best available estimate of the level of black unemployment compared with the overall level of unemployment.

Mr. Lang

According to preliminary results of the labour force survey, in the spring of 1985 in Great Britain, 202,000 or 20 per cent. of the non-white labour force were without a job and seeking work, compared with 2,808,000 or 10.6 per cent. of the total workforce.
