HC Deb 11 November 1980 vol 992 c125W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he can provide figures of redundancies created in (a) the private sector, and (b) the public sector equating the boundaries as far as possible with local authority boundary areas; and if he will provide these statistics for county and district council areas in England in order to draw a comparison between the numbers declared redundant in the public and private sectors in given areas for which a direct measurement of local government employment can be made.

Mr. Jim Lester

I shall reply to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
