58. Lieut-Commander AGNEW

asked the Minister of Labour the number of tin miners in the county of Cornwall registered as unemployed at the latest convenient date, and the number at the corresponding date in 1932?


Separate statistics of employment and unemployment in the tin-mining industry are not available. For statistical purposes persons employed in this industry are included in the industrial group "Lead, Tin and Copper Mining," and at 24th April, 1933, there were 1,853 insured persons in this classification recorded as unemployed at Employment Exchanges in the county of Cornwall. The corresponding figure at 25th April, 1932, was 2,231.
