§ 17. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the Minister of Labour the number of boys and girls, respectively, of ages 16 to 17 and 17 to 18, who are insured persons; and the number of boys and girls, respectively, transferred to registers of men and women during the last available year?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
It is estimated that at July, 1926, the latest date for which figures are available, the number of juveniles insured under the Unemployment Insurance Acts, exclusive of persons insured under Special Schemes, was made up as follows:
370 It is probable that the number of insured persons who became 18 years of age during 1926 was slightly less than the number who were aged 17 and under 18 at July of that year, but precise statistics on this point are not available.
Boys: 16 and under 17 274,000 17 and under 18 290,000 Girls: 16 and under 17 198,500 17 and under 18 202,500
