HC Deb 01 May 1923 vol 163 c1202W

asked the Minister of Health what was the number of persons, men and women, respectively, over the ago of 21 years in the United Kingdom at the time of the last Census?


Complete 1921 Census returns are not as yet available, and no Census was taken in 1921 in Ireland. On an approximate estimate, however, the total number of persons aged 21 years and over in Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the 1921 Census date may be taken as approaching 30 millions, comprising about 13½ million men and over 16 million women.
