HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 cc1318-9W

asked the Secretary for Scotland what proportion of the enumerators to be employed in the burgh of Kirkcaldy in connection with the forthcoming census on 17th April are persons who are in full-time employment; how many of the full list of persons required for the work recommended by the labour exchange authorities are unemployed ex-service men; and how many of the persons so recommended have been appointed?


Approximately 74 per cent, of the enumerators referred to in the first part of the question are in full-time employment. I am informed that the labour exchange authorities submitted no list of persons recommended by them as suitable for appointment as enumerators, and the last two parts of the question do not therefore arise.
