HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1295

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state what are the respective numbers of inn servants, including barmen and barmaids, and of inn-keepers; what the average hours of labour were before the War for barmen and barmaids in London and in the provinces, respectively; whether, as a result of the restriction orders now in force in scheduled areas, these hours of labour have been reduced; and, if so, to what extent and in what proportion of the total number of houses?


As regards the first part of the question, I can only refer the hon. Member to the information given in the 1911 Census tables. I am not aware of any more recent figures. As regards the remainder of the question, I regret that I am not in possession of any statistics.
