HC Deb 08 July 1902 vol 110 c1079

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board if he can state the principle upon which the order is determined in which the detailed abstract of the census returns by counties is presented to Parliament; when the detailed abstract for Glamorganshire is likely to be presented; and, in view of the fact that no abstract has yet been presented for a Welsh county, and that the increase of population in the decade and the consequent changes were greater in Glamorganshire than in any county of the United Kingdom save one, will he expedite the presentation of the census particulars relating to Glamorganshire.


Detailed abstracts of the Census Returns are published county by county in order of population. Glamorgan stands ninth on the list. The abstracts as to five of the eight larger counties have already been presented to Parliament and the Registrar General expects that the volume dealing with Glamorgan will be issued not later than the early part of next month.
