The Manpower Services Commission has informed me that the number of workers involved in all redundancies of 10 or more notified as due to occur in manufacturing industries in the last three years were as follows:
Redundancies involving 139,219 workers in manufacturing industries have so far been notified as due to occur between January and June 1980.
