HC Deb 24 March 1930 vol 237 cc46-7W

asked the Minister of Labour if she will supply complete quarterly average figures of wages, employment and unemployment, for the years 1925 to 1929, inclusive, in respect of that part of the packing and wrapping paper industry the products of which are, on importation, liable to duty?


I regret that statistics are not available in respect of wages, employment and unemployment in the packing and wrapping paper industry for the years 1925–1929. Statistics of unemployment among insured workers in the paper and paper board industry as a whole are regularly published in the "Ministry of Labour Gazette," but no separate figures are collected for the wrapping and packing paper section.
