HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 c1064W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the President of the Board of Trade the value of the annual production per head of the population, for the years 1913, 1938 and at the latest convenient date.

Captain Waterhouse

This information only becomes available for years in which a Census of Production is taken. Far 1935, the latest census year, the value of industrial (including mining) output per head of the population was about £50, the corresponding figure for 1907, after making an allowance for the inclusion of Southern Ireland in the published figures, being approximately £30.
