§ Mr. SNOWDEN
asked the President of the Local Government Board if he will consider the question of obtaining on the next Census paper information as to whether the person is unemployed on the date appointed, and for what length of time he has been unemployed during the previous twelve months, as is done in the United States?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
As I stated in the reply I gave on the 10th instant to a question on the same subject by my hon. Friend the Member for Scarborough, the point has been considered, but the machinery of the Census does not appear to be suitable for collecting statistics of unemployment.
