HC Deb 13 February 1947 vol 433 cc531-2
74. Mr. Scott-Elliot

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether figures showing the output per worker are available in respect of industries other than coalmining; and whether he will cause these to be published at regular intervals.

Sir S. Cripps

Apart from the information published in the Monthly Digest of Statistics as to the numbers employed in the principal industries and the output of various products. there are no figures available.

Mr. Scott-Elliot

Would the right hon. and learned Gentleman consider making some arrangement to obtain the figures?

Sir S. Cripps

When we, get the Census of Production, we may be able to have some more figures.
