star this property answer text <p>I refer the Hon Member to the answer given to PQ 4936 in which I give details, published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), of the number of people whose usual weekly hours are less than six hours, and between 6 and 15 hours. Details are not available for the number of people working less than 16 hours who wanted to work more in each of the last 10 years.</p><p> </p><p>ONS does publish some related data: 1) the number of people in employment who want to work more hours, are available for work and are currently working below the hours threshold (40 hours a week for those under 18, 48 hours a week for those aged 18 or over), and 2) people working part-time who gave the reason as “could not find full-time job” as reason for working part-time. The tables below give extracts from the ONS published data, however, both these data series will include both those working less than, and more than, 16 hours a week.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 1: The number of people in employment who want to work more hours, are available for work and are currently working below the hours threshold</strong></p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Date</p></td><td><p>Level</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2010</p></td><td><p>2,754</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2011</p></td><td><p>2,841</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2012</p></td><td><p>3,061</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2013</p></td><td><p>3,090</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2014</p></td><td><p>2,977</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2015</p></td><td><p>2,786</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2016</p></td><td><p>2,601</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2017</p></td><td><p>2,460</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2018</p></td><td><p>2,390</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2019</p></td><td><p>2,479</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Source: Table EMP16, ONS, Labour Force Survey</p><p> </p><p><strong>Table 2: Part-time workers who gave the reason as “could not find full-time job” as reason for working part-time</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Date</p></td><td><p>Level</p></td><td><p>% of all Part Time Employed</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2010</p></td><td><p>1,084</p></td><td><p>14.0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2011</p></td><td><p>1,275</p></td><td><p>16.2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2012</p></td><td><p>1,438</p></td><td><p>17.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2013</p></td><td><p>1,467</p></td><td><p>18.3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2014</p></td><td><p>1,347</p></td><td><p>16.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2015</p></td><td><p>1,285</p></td><td><p>15.7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2016</p></td><td><p>1,149</p></td><td><p>13.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2017</p></td><td><p>1,019</p></td><td><p>12.1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2018</p></td><td><p>968</p></td><td><p>11.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Apr-Jun 2019</p></td><td><p>907</p></td><td><p>10.6</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Source: Table EMP01NSA, ONS, Labour Force Survey</p><p> </p><p>At UK level people in full-time work have made up over three quarters of the overall increase in employment since 2010.</p>
