Mr. Sanders: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many jobs were lost in the (a) tourism, (b) agriculture, (c) fishing and (d) defence-related industries in each constituency in Devon and Cornwall in the last 12 months for which figures are available. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question about job losses in tourism, agriculture, fishing and defence-related industries. (87391)
While statistics of jobs lost or created are not available explicitly, statistics from surveys enable comparisons to be made of net changes in the number of jobs from year to year.
The attached table shows the number of employee jobs in tourism-related industries in each constituency in Devon and Cornwall in 2004, and net changes since 2003. These figures are obtained by combining estimates of employee jobs in the following industries, as identified by the Standard Industrial Classification 2003:
Hotels and other tourist accommodation
Restaurants, bars and canteens
Travel agencies/tour operators
The table also shows the number of employee jobs in agriculture, fishing, and defence activities in Devon and Cornwall as a whole, and for those constituencies where information is available.
These estimates are from the Annual Business Inquiry and, as with any sample survey, are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
|Employee jobs in tourism, agriculture, fishing and defence activities in Devon and Cornwall, by Parliamentary Constituency, 2003 and 2004|
|Tourism( 1)||Agriculture, hunting and forestry( 2)|
|Fishing( 3)||Defence activities( 4)|
|(1) Tourism is defined as Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 2003 Groups: 551-555: Hotels and restaurants; 601-623: Transport; 633: Travel agencies and tour operators n.e.c; 925: Library, archives, museums and other cultural activities; 926: Sporting activities; 927: Other recreational activities.|
(2) SIC 2003 Division A: Agriculture, hunting and forestry. These figures are aggregates from which agriculture class 0100 (SIC 2003) have been excluded.
(3) SIC 2003 Division B: Fishing
(4) SIC 2003 Class 7522: Defence activities
(5) These figures are not shown in order to prevent the disclosure of data that could lead to individual businesses being identified.
The estimates for individual industries in Parliamentary Constituencies are based on very small sample sizes and are hence subject to significant sampling variation. Changes between years cannot be assessed at all reliably for these cases.
