To ask the Secretary of State for Employment (1) how many unofficial strikes took place in Great Britain in 1989; and what were the comparable figures for each of the five previous years;(2) what was the total number of days lost through unofficial strikes in Great Britain in 1989; and what were the comparable figures for the five previous years.

Separate statistics on unofficial strikes ceased to be published as a regular series in 1981. However, a limited amount of information from a special exercise was included in the Government's Green Paper "Unofficial Action and the Law", a copy of which is in the House of Commons Library.
