HC Deb 28 June 1911 vol 27 cc552-3W

asked the President of the Local Government Board if the numbers of the population in Great Britain and in various counties and boroughs published by the newspaper press and purporting to be the result of the Census were supplied officially; and, if not, whether he can inform the House how these figures were obtained?


Presumably the question relates to figures which were published in the newspapers on or about 25th May. Those figures had been given by me in answer to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Hoxton on the previous day.
