HC Deb 10 March 1938 vol 332 c2082
9. Mr. Robert Gibson

asked the Minister of Labour what were the numbers and percentages of persons in the shipbuilding and ship-repairing industry unemployed in the country generally and in each of the shipbuilding centres, respectively, as at 13th December, 1937, and 17th January, 1938, respectively, or other convenient dates?

Mr. E. Brown

I am having this information extracted, and will circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT as soon as it is available.

Mr. Gibson

Will the right hon. Gentleman give the percentages for Greenock and for the country generally?

Mr. Brown

I will answer the question precisely, and, if the hon. Member wishes for further particulars, I will see what I can do to give him supplementary information.
