HC Deb 01 August 1923 vol 167 cc1457-8
43. Mr. EDE

asked the Minister of Labour how many young persons were unemployed on the last date for which figures are available; how many were unemployed six months and 12 months previous to that date; and will he in each case give the figures for each sex separately?


I will, if I may, circulate these particulars in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

The following are the particulars:

The numbers of juveniles under the age of 18 on the live registers of the Employment Exchanges in Great Britain at 23rd July, 1923, 22nd January, 1923, and 24th July, 1922, were as follow:
