§ 82. Mr. SNOWDEN
asked when the final summaries of the wages census taken in 1907 will be published?
A volume dealing with wages and hours of labour in about forty trades will be issued next week. This will complete the publication of the series of detailed Reports. It was at one time intended to include in this volume a general survey of the whole inquiry, but it has now been decided to await the publication of the results of the Census of Population of 1911 as regards occupations and trades, as it is anticipated that these figures will be of considerable advantage in summing up the wages inquiry.
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
Are the Board of Trade conducting another wage census, and, if so, will they endeavour to supply the figures a little earlier?
