asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish in the Official Report the annual average number and percentage of those unemployed in the London borough of Haringey who had previously worked in the clothing industry in each year since 1970.

Unemployment statistics are collected for employment office areas but not for London boroughs. Those in the table below are for the Tottenham and Wood Green employment office areas which, together, approximate to the London borough of Haringey. Information is given at August each year from 1976 showing the numbers registered as unemployed who last worked in the clothing industries (Minimum List Headings 441 to 446 and 449 of the standard industrial classification). It is not available for earlier years and could be provided on an annual average basis only at disproportionate cost.
