HC Deb 21 February 1996 vol 272 c203W
31. Mr. Touhig

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what representations she has received about people who are currently working part time because they cannot find a full-time job. [14709]

Mr. Forth

No such representations have been made recently. People in Britain welcome the opportunities to choose between full-time and part time work. Only about 14 per cent. of people who work part time do so because they could not find a full-time job.
