§ Ms Roseanna Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what estimate he has made of(a) the number of homeworkers in Scotland and (b) how many are (i) self-employed and (ii) employers. 
§ Mr. Kynoch
The Labour Force Survey estimates that in spring 1995 there were 44,000 homeworkers in Scotland working at their own homes. Of these, 27,000 were self-employed. No reliable estimate is available for Scotland for the number of homeworkers who were employers.
