HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 c2049W
Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will make a statement showing the comparison in the increase in wages and the increase in productivity per employé in the period 1931 to 1938?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I am informed by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade that no information on the subject of productivity per employéis available in respect of the period referred to in the question. This subject can only be dealt with comprehensively for years in which a Census of Production has been taken, and the final volume on the Census of Production for 1935 will, it is expected, contain a comparison between that year and 1930.
