HC Deb 10 March 1938 vol 332 c2081
7. Mr. Day

asked the Minister of Labour particulars of insured persons classified as belonging to the entertainment and sports group recorded as unemployed during the 12 months ended to the last convenient date?

Mr. E. Brown

The average number of insured persons, aged 14–64 years, in the entertainments, sport, etc., industry classification recorded as unemployed in Great Britain at dates from March, 1937, to February, 1938, was 23,421.

Mr. Day

Could the Minister separate those engaged in the cinema industry from the general classification?

Mr. Brown

I could not do that without an analysis of every single case.
