§ 18. Mr. HOGGE
asked the President of the Board of Trade what evidence the Committees on fabric gloves, hollow-ware, and glassware were supplied with by his Department or in camera as to the amount of employment or unemployment in the above industries; and whether he can give figures showing the unemployment in these industries, in view of the statement that the toal number of glove-makers totally unemployed at a recent date was 470?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The evidence as to unemployment in the trades mentioned, as furnished by the complainants to the Board of Trade, and subsequently to the 1698 Committees, is summarised in the Committees' Reports. I have at present no additional information on the subject.
