HC Deb 05 November 1993 vol 231 c578W
Mr. Battle

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish a table for each year since 1979 listing how many construction workers are unemployed, set out by trade or skill.

Miss Widdecombe

Information on the previous industry and occupation of people unemployed on the International Labour Organisation definition is available from the Labour Force Survey from 1984 onwards. People in a wide range of occupations are employed by the construction industry and information can be obtained for specific occupations via the Quantime LFS service available in the Library.
