HC Deb 01 December 1989 vol 162 c454W
Ms. Armstrong

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what is the proportion of mothers with children aged between two years and five years old who work in(a) part-time and (b) full-time work for the latest year for which figures are available.

Mr. Nicholls

Among women in Great Britain whose youngest dependent child was aged at least two years but under 11 it is estimated, using information from the "Labour Force Survey," that in spring 1988 just over 31 per cent. were in part-time employment and about 12 per cent. were in full-time employment.
