§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what were the total numbers of women in employment in Dundee and Tayside, respectively, in June 1975 and June 1976; and what proportion of the Scottish total these represent.
§ Mr. Golding
At June 1975, the latest date for which employment estimates are available for local areas and regions in Scotland, there were 41,600 female employees in employment in Dundee and 69,600 in the Tayside Region. These figures represent 4.8 per cent. and 8.1 per cent., respectively, of the total number of female employees in employment in Scotland. The results of the 1976 census of employment will be available later in the year.
