§ Mr. Ron Davies
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment, if she will list, for the most recent year for which figures are available, and for each of the five years before, the number of working days lost due to work-related upper limb disorder.
§ Mr. McLoughlin
The data requested is not available. However, the accident and ill-health trailer to the 1990 labour force survey will provide estimates of the number of cases for different categories of work-related illness, and of work days lost, based on individuals' reports. The results of the survey are currently being analysed and will be published later this year.
