HC Deb 10 December 1931 vol 260 c2086W

asked the Secretary of State for India the figures of population classified according to occupation returned in the Indian census taken early in the present year; and when the complete census returns are expected to be available?


The figures for occupations are not yet available. I have not heard when the Government of India expect the complete report to be published, but they expect to supply me in about a year's time with a summary of it similar to the summary of the 1921 Census that was presented to Parliament. This will include statistics of occupations.
