asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the total number of persons who were employed by the Glasgow Corporation as polling clerks and enumerators at the municipal elections on 6th November, 1934; the number of unemployed and employed persons, respectively, who were engaged; and the number engaged who are in full-time employment in Glasgow Corporation service?


I am informed that 911 poll clerks and 660 enumerators were so employed. All the poll clerks, and a proportion of the enumerators, were unemployed or necessitous persons. Of the 660 enumerators, 263 were selected from the lower-paid full-time officials in the Corporation service.
