Publication of UK labour market statistics is to move to Tuesdays so politicians have a change to study the details. Currently the figures are released on the same day as Prime Minister’s Questions.
The ONS said: “there is a risk that these detailed statistics are not fully understood by Parliamentarians on both sides of the House before they can be debated. This reduces the public value of these statistics”.
The first Tuesday release of the labour market figures will be 17 April 2018.
