HC Deb 01 December 1938 vol 342 c624W
Captain Plugge

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the estimated number of insured persons employed in the aircraft industry in July, 1938; and whether he will consider providing separate figures for the aircraft industry apart from the motor manufacturing industry in the unemployment returns given in the Ministry of Labour Gazette each month?

Mr. E. Brown

It has not been found practicable to distinguish the aircraft industry separately in the statistics of employment and unemployment among persons insured under the Unemployment Insurance Acts compiled by my Department, and I therefore regret that the information desired is not available.
