HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 cc1940-1
28. Major ELLIOT

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the average number of men per month employed on State-assisted housing schemes from September, 1928, to February, 1929, inclusive, and the average numbers per month similarly employed from September, 1929, to February, 1930, inclusive?


As the answer involves a number of figures, I propose to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The average numbers of men employed monthly on State-assisted housing schemes promoted by local authorities for the periods in question were as follows:—
