HC Deb 24 February 1927 vol 202 cc1939-40W

asked the Minister of Labour if he will give figures showing the number of youths, to the last available time, who have not yet been able to enter into employment during the last four years, three years, two years and one year, and their present age; and what steps are being taken to remedy the position?


I am afraid that the statistics required are not available. Some information, however, bearing on the subject is contained in the Report of an Inquiry into the Personal Circumstances and Industry History of a representative number of juveniles registered for employment in June and July, 1925. I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
