HC Deb 10 March 1910 vol 14 c1792W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if he will consider the desirability of providing in the schedule of the Census Bill for an enumeration of the unemployed on the date of the Census, as a basis of comparison with the Board of Trade Returns relating to the number of trade unionists unemployed on the last day of March?


The point has been considered, but the machinery of the Census does not appear to be suitable for collecting statistics of unemployment.
