§ MR. PIKE PEASE (Darlington)
On behalf of the hon. Member for Worcester, I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will give a detailed list of the trade unions from whom returns were received relating to the numbers unemployed in March last.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. CHURCHILL,) Dundee
All returns with regard to the state of employment made by employers and their organisation, and also by trade unions, are obtained on the understanding that individual returns shall not be disclosed. In these circumstances I regret that I am unable to give the information which the hon. Member seeks.
