HC Deb 14 November 1934 vol 293 cc1975-6W

asked the Minister of Labour the unemployment figures in the monumental granite trade as at the end of September, 1932, 1933, and 1934?


Separate figures are not available in respect of unemployed persons in the monumental granite trade, but the number of wholly unemployed persons, aged 18 and over, who were registered at employment exchanges in Great Britain for employment as monumental masons, engravers and stone carvers was 443 at 24th October, 1932, 401 at 23rd October, 1933, and 424 at 22nd October, 1934. These statistics are compiled only at quarterly dates, and figures are therefore not available for September of these years.
