asked the Minister of Labour the number of unemployed in Tiverton at the present time and at this time last year?


At 20th April, 1931, there were 174 persons on the registers of the Tiverton Employment Exchange. Figures are not available for 21st April, 1930 (Easter Monday), but at 14th April, 1930, the number was 102.
