HC Deb 25 May 1933 vol 278 c1249

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has any statistics showing the present number of unemployed actors, actresses, musicians and other theatrical employes; and if not, whether he will arrange to obtain such statistics at an early date?


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

Following is the statement:

The following table gives the information desired so far as it is available:

Unemployed men and women, aged 18 years and over, on the Registers of Employment Exchanges in Great Britain at 24th April, 1933, who were applicants for employment in the undermentioned occupations:
