HC Deb 08 July 1913 vol 55 cc239-40W

asked the Secretary for Scotland if he can state the number of inhabitants in the county of Inverness according to the 1911 Census, giving the numbers in the urban and rural districts separately; and if he can give the same information with regard to the counties of Sutherland, Argyle, Ross and Cromarty, Caithness, Orkney, and Shetland?


The question cannot be answered precisely, because "urban districts" and "rural districts" are not statutory terms in Scotland. Tables showing the Burghal and Extra-Burghal populations in the counties named with various other particulars will be given in tables in Volume II. of the Census Report, which it is hoped will be published before the end of the month.
