§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many people he estimates are currently working with (a) flour, (b) animals and insects in laboratories, (c) platinum salts, (d) resins, (e) isocyanates and (f) proteolytic enzymes.
§ Mr. Waddington
[pursuant to the reply, 11 March 1981, c. 335.]: At December 1980 the provisional numbers of employees in employment in Great Britain in the industries most concerned with flour—grain milling and bread and flour confectionery—minimum list headings 211 and 212 of the Standards Industrial Classification—were 19,700 and 87,000, respectively. The other activities listed do not form complete minimum list headings and no estimates can be given.
