The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.
Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated March 2009:
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many people have been made redundant in (a) Barnsley East and Mexborough constituency, (b) Barnsley and (c) Doncaster in the last six months, (264554)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles labour market statistics for local areas from the annual Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the Annual Population Survey (APS) following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions. However, this source does not support analysis of redundancies at these geographic levels.
