HC Deb 03 March 1938 vol 332 c1280
62. Sir John Birchall

asked the Minister of Health the latest figures of the birth rate in the following cases: schoolmasters, clergymen, professional men, and skilled and unskilled wage earners?

Sir K. Wood

The Registrar-General's report upon occupational birth rates in 1931 is not yet complete; and certain advance figures only can be given. As they involve a tabular statement, I will, with my hon. Friend's permission, circulate the statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Jenkins

Can the right hon. Gentleman give the figures for Cabinet Ministers?

Following is the statement:

Occupational Birth Rates, 1931.
Crude live birth rate per 1,000 Married Males under 55 years of age.
All Married Males (including unoccupied) under 55 years of age. 95.9

Professional Occupations (excluding clerical staff). 73.5
Social Class III, Skilled Workers. 95.3
