HC Deb 22 October 1942 vol 383 cc2115-6W
Mr. Rostron Duckworth

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in future, in setting out periodically the number of unemployed women, he will state the exact percentage of those who, owing to reasons rendering them immobile, are unable to leave their districts and therefore have to wait for work to be brought in?

Mr. Bevin

In the statements which are regularly published by my Department giving the numbers of women registered as unemployed, the numbers who are unable for good cause to transfer to another area are already shown separately.
