HC Deb 29 June 1933 vol 279 c1642
7. Mr. HARTLAND (for Mr. CAPORN)

asked the Minister of Labour the average amount of unemployment in the hosiery trade during the first four months in each of the years 1931, 1932, and 1933?


As the reply includes a table of figures, I will, if I may, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the statement:

Average numbers and percentages of insured workpeople in the hosiery industry classification in Great Britain recorded as unemployed during January to April, 1931, 1932, and 1933.

January to April, Average of numbers unemployed. Average of percentages unemployed.
1931 22,802 21.2
1932 13,641 12.2
1933 18,350 16.1
