HC Deb 07 March 1934 vol 286 c1811
44. Mr. HICKS

asked the Minister of Labour the number of unemployed building trade operatives who were registered at the Manchester and district sub-exchanges for the week ended 3rd March?


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


Has not this question some bearing on the question which I put?

Following is the statement:

Insured persons in the building industry classification recorded as unemployed at Employment Exchanges in Manchester, Salford and district at 19th February, 1934.*
