EDM number 434 in 1996-97, proposed by Jean Corston on 22/01/1997.

That this House notes the Government's decision to suspend the General Household Survey for 1997; notes that this survey has provided essential national information annually about how society is changing not available in such rich variety from any other source and which accounted for 27 tables selected for inclusion in the Government's own key report Social Trends 1996 covering trends in household size, patterns of family building and dislocation, contraception, school-leavers and adults with GCSE grades A-C, membership of occupational and personal pension schemes, consumer durables in the home, visits to dentists, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, kind of help given by carers, unpaid services given voluntarily, mobility aids for the elderly, dwelling tenure by ethnic group and occupation, tenure one year after devorce, underoccupation and overcrowding, use of car, activities in the home, and participation in sport, games and physical activities; finds that the consultation period for this decision was 20th December 1996 to 3rd January 1997, covering the Christmas period and when the House was in recess; and urges the Government to restore the GHS on a regular annual basis in 1998.

This motion has been signed by a total of 78 MPs.
