HC Deb 15 February 1934 vol 285 c2068
8. Dr. LEECH

asked the Minister of Labour the number of musicians who are now unemployed; and how many have been placed in employment by his Department in the last 12 months?


The number of wholly unemployed persons aged 18 years and upwards registered at Employment Exchanges in Great Britain at 22nd January, 1934, as applicants for work as musicians was 2,772. I regret that the statistics are not compiled on a basis which would enable me to give the numbers of musicians who have been placed in employment by the exchanges.
