§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how many full-time and part-time jobs were created in the 12 months to September 1988 in Great Britain.
§ Mr. Lee
There are no figures for job gains and job losses. In the year to September 1988 the work force in employment in Great Britain increased by 399,000 of which 220,000 were in full-time employment and 179,000 were in part-time employment. The work force in employment is the sum of employees in employment, the self-employed, Her Majesty's forces and participants in work-related Government training programmes. In classifiying the work force in employment between full and part-time, all programme participants are counted as in part-time employment.
