To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what, at the latest date, were the figures for unemployment; and what were the comparable figures in June 1979.
§ 26. Mr. Clelland
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what proposals he has to change the method of calculating the numbers of unemployed.
§ Mr. Oppenheim
There no plans at present to change the method of calculating unemployment figures derived from either the claimant count or the labour force survey. Each method complements the other and each has its own distinct advantages.
