§ 41. Commander COCHRANE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can give for the latest convenient date the total number of factories in England and Wales and in Scotland, classified for both countries in accordance with the number of persons employed?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir Herbert Samuel)
The returns made under the Workmen's Compensation Act by occupiers of factories in respect of the year 1930 have been classified into certain groups according to the number of persons employed, and I propose to circulate this information with the OFFICIAL REPORT. The figures have been tabulated for the whole country and I regret it will not be possible to give separate figures for Scotland.
|Number employed.||Number of factories.||Percentage of Total.|
|1,001 and upwards||421||.3|
§ These figures will be published with further particulars, and any necessary explanation in the forthcoming Annual Report of the Chief Inspector of Factories for 1931.
