asked the Secretary of State for Employment what was the total number of redundancies declared since May 1979 and the number of new jobs created since that date to the most recent practicable date.

I am informed by the Manpower Services Commission that the number of workers involved in redundancies affecting 10 or more employees and notified as due to occur throughout Great Britain between May 1979 and February 1980 was 181,622.
