HC Deb 29 January 1913 vol 47 c1335
64. Mr. FELL

asked if there is any information among the Emigration Returns showing that an excessive number of persons connected with the building trade have left this country during the past three years?


The entries in the passenger lists of passengers' occupations are in many cases so vague and unsatisfactory that ten years ago the attempt to tabulate these entries by separate trades was abandoned. I regret, therefore, that I am not able to give the information desired.
