HC Deb 23 March 1910 vol 15 c1142W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, in the forthcoming Census, he will cause a column or columns to be inserted in the Census papers in which the person making a return shall state whether each individual engaged in manual labour included in the return is in full employment, and, if not, the number of hours of work per week actually performed by such person; and whether he will consider the advisability of making the definition of full employment not less than forty-eight hours' work per week?


I do not think the machinery of the Census is suitable for the collection of information of the character described in the question.
