force area, drawn from 1981 census figures, showing the total population broken down by the usual census categories for age, social class, employment, housing, tenure, socio-economic group, together with a statement of any estimates of change since 1981 made by his Department.

[pursuant to his reply, 14 December 1987, c. 333]: The information requested is as follows, based on 1981 census figures. It is not possible to give an estimate of change since 1981. However, it should be noted that the data reflect local authority wards as at 1981, and some of these boundaries have since changed.
