Letter from Stephen Penneck, dated September 2012

As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question concerning how many people were employed by small and medium-sized businesses in (a) Woking constituency and (b) Surrey in the latest period for which figures are available.

Annual statistics on the number of employees are available from the ONS release Business Register Employment Survey (BRES) at:

www.statistics.gov.uk

However, it is not possible to derive a breakdown by employment size band from BRES. The table contains the latest statistics available, which show the number of employees in Woking and Surrey for 2010.

Area Number of employees
Surrey 509,000
Woking 45,000
Note: These figures are aggregates from which farm agriculture (SIC class 0100) have been excluded.
