HC Deb 21 June 1971 vol 819 cc208-9W
Mr. Gwynoro Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many notifications of redundancy his Department has been informed of in Wales for the first five months of 1971; how this compares with 1970 and 1969; and what is the total number of jobs involved.

Mr. Dudley Smith

It is not the practice to keep records of every minor redundancy, but the information available shows that in the first five months of 1971, 166 notifications of redundancies were received from firms in Wales. During 1970 and 1969, the numbers of notifications received were 176 and 110 respectively. The total number of employees involved in 1969, 1970 and the first five months of 1971 was 27,200.
