HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c642W

asked the Minister of Labour approximately, in percentages, the ratio of males and females engaged in remunerative occupations in any year prior and subsequent to the Great War, preferably in 1911, and 1929, respectively?


The only years before and after the War, for which comparable statistics of all gainfully occupied persons are available, are 1911 and 1921. In 1911, of the total number of such persons in Great Britain, 70.44 per cent. were males and 29.56 per cent. were females. In 1921, 70.55 per cent. were males and 29.45 per cent. were females.
