HC Deb 07 June 1988 vol 134 cc524-5W
Mr. John Marshall

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what information he has as to what has been the average level of job creation since 1983 of the economies whose currency is subject to the exchange rate mechanism of the European monetary system; which country enjoyed the highest level of job creation and which the lowest; and what were the respective levels.

Mr. Lilley

"Eurostat", March 1988, page 39 gives data on civilian employment for each member country of the ERM. These data generally relate to numbers of jobs rather than numbers of persons.
