Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 24 February 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many people were recorded as self-employed in (a) rural areas, (b) urban areas and (c) nationally in each year since 1997; and what proportion of the workforce this represented in each case in each year. (318425)

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.

A copy of the letter will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
