To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what are the current estimates and projections of the population of working age of (a) men aged 16 to 64 years and (b) women aged 16 to 59 years, by standard region including Greater London for 1979, 1983, 1986, 1987 and 1988.

[pursuant to his rely, 23 February 1988, c. 86]: I regret to say that an error has been discovered in some of the information which was supplied to my Department for use in my earlier reply.
