§ Mr. WILES
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his at- 1300W tention has been called to the fact that, although the final Reports of the 1911 Census for Scotland and Ireland have both been published for some months, the final Report for London has not yet been issued; and can he give the date when the volume for London will be ready?
§ Mr. BURNS
The plan of publishing Census results by counties in advance of the results for the country as a whole is not being followed as regards England and Wales on the present occasion. The method of publication is explained in the first volume of the final Report on the Census of England and Wales, containing population statistics of administrative areas, which was published in July last; two further volumes containing respectively population statistics for Poor Law and Registration Areas and Parliamentary Areas have since been issued, and a fourth volume (Ecclesiastical Areas) will be issued in a few days. It is not possible at present to state when the County Volumes, which will be collated from the several subject volumes, will be issued.
