§ Mr. E. Brown
As the reply includes a table of figures I will, if I may, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the statement:
§ Table showing the numbers of insured persons aged 16–64 in the engineering industry in Great Britain who were recorded as unemployed in September, 1936, and September, 1937:
|Ages.||21st September, 1936.||13th September, 1937.|
§ The figures relate to general, electrical, marine and constructional engineering and the construction and repair of motor vehicles, cycles and aircraft.
§ The figures for September, 1937, have been compiled in accordance with the revised procedure for counting the unemployed, under which persons subsequently found to be in employment on the day of the count are excluded from the figures. On the orignial basis the total numbers recorded as unemployed at 13th September, 1937, in these industries were 53,854 males and 3,210 females.
