HC Deb 01 December 1932 vol 272 c993W

asked the Minister of Labour how many women are unemployed in the borough of Hornsey and their approximate ages; and how many receive unemployment benefit?


Separate statistics of unemployment for the borough of Hornsey are not available. The majority of unemployed persons resident in Hornsey probably register at the Wood Green Employment Exchange, and the numbers of women aged 18 and over on the registers of that Exchange at 24th October, 1932, were as follow:

Numbers insured and uninsured on Registers. Numbers of insured women with claims admitted (included in column 1).
1. 2.
Aged 21 and over. 687 445
Aged 18 to 20 130 98
817 543

I regret that it is not possible to furnish any detailed age analysis of the numbers aged 21 and over.
