§ Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the activity 483W rate in Wales for the latest date for which the figure is available.
§ Mr. John Morris,
pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 21st June 1977, Vol. 933, col 475], gave the following information
Wales: Activity Rates
(Civilian Labour Force aged 16 and over)
… … 1971 per cent 1976* per cent Males … … 78.8 76.9 Females … … 35.9 39.3 *Provisional
The figures given for 1971 in my original answer have been adjusted for comparability with the 1976 information—that is, to exclude Her Majesty's Forces and persons under 16.
