HC Deb 19 March 1936 vol 310 cc635-6W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the number of men, boys and girls from Wales for whom employment has been found in other areas during the last four years; and whether he can estimate the number of families removed from Wales to take up employment elsewhere in the same period?

Lieut.-Colonel MUIRHEAD

During the four years 1932–1935, the Department found employment in other areas for 9,368 men, 3,033 boys, and 4,690 girls from depressed areas in Wales and Monmouthshire, and assisted approximately 2,000 families to remove. No information is available regarding the number of persons, or families, who moved from non-depressed areas in Wales, or regarding the number of persons or families who moved from depressed areas without assistance from the Department.
