Volume 175: debated on Wednesday 27 June 1990

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list all notified redundancies in Scotland of more than 300 employees since 1979 giving the employer, date of announcement and number of jobs lost.

[holding answer 13 June 1990]: Information cannot be provided in the precise form requested. The names of individual employers notifying redundancies to the Department of Employment are treated as commercial in confidence. Additionally, data on redundancies confirmed are unlikely to be complete, as employers are not obliged to advise the Department of Employment of the redundancies actually effected following notification. The remaining information sought is set out in the table.
