(2) the number of men and women, respectively, registered as unemployed at Goole Employment Exchange during the last weeks in January 1937, 1938 and 1939?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
As the reply includes a table of figures, I will, if I may, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
|Goole Employment Exchange.|
|Date.||Number of unemployed persons aged 18 and over on the registers.||Number of unemployed persons aged 18–64 insured under the Agricultural Scheme, included in the previous columns.|
|Men 18 and over.||Women 18 and over.||Men 18–64.||Women 18–64.|

§ Note.—Comparison of the figures for 1938 and 1939 with those for 1937 is effected by the introduction, in September, 1937, of the revised procedure for counting the unemployed, under which persons on the registers subsequently found to be in employment at the date of the count, are excluded from the figures.
