§ Mr. Isaacs
The only available analysis of the figure of 3,001,000 is that given in my reply to a similar question by the hon. Member for Orpington (Sir W. Smithers) on 30th January, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. Statistics are not available in regard to the numbers occupied in the conduct or service of bookmaking businesses, totalisators or football pools. The production of books and newspapers and the printing and publishing of music are included in the industry classification "printing, publishing and bookbinding." The production of plays, films, and music is included under the heading "entertainment." Information in regard to the last part of the question is not available.
