HC Deb 07 May 1925 vol 183 c1166W

asked the Minister of Labour if he will give the number of unemployed per 1, 000 of the population in each European country and the United States, taking the latest comparative figures available?


No statistics are available showing either the total number of persons unemployed or the proportion of the total population unemployed in European countries or in the United States. I am sending my hon. Friend, however, a copy of the current issue of the "Ministry of Labour Gazette, "which contains the most recent figures relating to unemployment in various countries for which data are published.
