HC Deb 06 December 1922 vol 159 cc1795-6W

asked the Minister of Labour, as representing the Ministry of Health, whether any action can be taken to expedite the publication of the English Census Reports, inasmuch as the volumes of the Scottish Census Reports have already been issued?


The work of tabulation is now well advanced: part of the County of London tables, covering a population of nearly four and a half millions, have been published, while the rest of the London tables and tables for Middlesex are in the press, and other counties will follow in succession without delay. The hon. Member is mistaken, I believe, in suggesting that the whole of the Scottish Reports have been issued, and he will appreciate that the rate of progress with the county volumes must depend upon the population of the counties undertaken. Every effort is, however, being made to expedite the work of tabulation and the issue of the Reports.
