Mr. Lunn

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give the total loss of working days through trade disputes during 1937?

Mr. E. Brown

According to the statistics compiled by my Department, the aggregate number of working days lost through trade disputes in Great Britain and Northern Ireland during 1937, at the establishments where the disputes occurred, was approximately 3,417,000. Further particulars, together with an explanation of the scope of the statistics, will be found on pages 5 and 6 of the January issue of the "Ministry of Labour Gazette."
