HC Deb 20 March 1987 vol 112 cc646-7W
Ms. Harman

asked the Paymaster General if he will give the number of people unemployed in the constituencies of Peckham, Bermondsey and Dulwich for each year since 1979.

Mr. Trippier

Following is the available information, which is also in the Library. The table shows the numbers of unemployed claimants in the parliamentary constituencies of Peckham, Southwark and Bermondsey and Dulwich in February of each year since 1984. The comparison is affected by the change in the compilation of the unemployment statistics in March 1986. Statistics of unemployment for parliamentary constituencies are derived from the ward-based system and are available only from June 1983.

Peckham Southwark and Bermondsey Dulwich
February 1984 8,106 6,509 4,437
February 1985 8,806 6,875 4,910
February 1986 9,256 7,709 4,904
February 1987 8,877 7,501 4,556
