§ Mr. Nicholas Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how 258W many persons are currently employed in the brewing industry; and in what areas the largest concentrations of such employment are situated.
§ Mr. Golding
It is estimated that there were 69,100 employees in employment in the brewing and malting industry in Great Britain at August 1976. The employment information available for local areas comes from the annual census of employment; the latest results for June 1975 show that there were large concentrations of these employees in the Burton-on-Trent, Edinburgh, London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Warrington and York areas.
