asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what were the totals of local government employees, excluding teachers, in March 1976, March 1979 and March 1980, estimated in England and Wales.

The joint manpower watch surveys for England and Wales show that the full-time equivalent total of employees, excluding teachers and also lecturers, was 1,528,331 in March 1976, and 1,523,769 in March 1979. I am unable to estimate the March 1980 figures, which are only now being compiled for the return due to be published in June.
