HC Deb 19 February 1931 vol 248 c1425
18. Miss LEE

asked the Minister of Labour the number of workers employed in any branch of the building industry who are at present registered as unemployed in the county of Lanarkshire, including Glasgow?


As the reply is in the form of a table, I will, if I may, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.


Is the right hon. Lady aware that Glasgow is a county in itself and has nothing to do with Lanarkshire?

Following is the table:

Insured persons classified as belonging to the building industry recorded as unemployed at Employment Exchanges in Lanarkshire (including Glasgow) at 26th January, 1931:

Occupation. Number unemployed.
Carpenters 1,026
Bricklayers 555
Masons 241
Slaters 296
Plasterers 352
Painters 1,533
Plumbers 496
Labourers to above 1,736
All other occupations 3,217
Total 9,452
