HC Deb 29 November 1922 vol 159 c687
56. Mr. C. WILSON

asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether he can state for the end of October in 1920, 1921, and 1922 the number of persons per 1,000 of the population who were receiving out relief in the township of Sheffield, the township of Ecclesall, the parish of Tinsley, and in such part of the township or parish of Wortley as is within the boundary of the city of Sheffield?


The reply to this question can most conveniently be given in a tabular form, and I propose, with permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the reply:

Separate figures are not available for the four parishes named, but the figures for the Poor Law unions in which the parishes are included are as follows:

Last Saturday in October
Poor Law Union. 1920. 1921. 1922.
Sheffield 8.3 113.2 163.1
Ecclesall Bierlow 3.6 67.4 82.3
Rotherham (including the Parish of Tinsley. 13.5 47.4 40.9
Wortley 6.8 11.8 22.5
