§ Mr. J. L. Williams
asked the Minister of Labour (r) the numbers of unemployed, men and women, registering at the employment exchanges of Glasgow at the latest convenient date; and on the corresponding date in 1939;
INSURED PERSONS AGED 14 YEARS AND OVER REGISTERED AS UNEMPLOYED. Employment Exchanges. 15th March, 1948. 13th March, 1939. Males. Females. Males. Females. Glasgow area … 14,961 4,920 60,073 16,567 *Finnieston … 744 312 2,802 793 *Glasgow Central (Waterloo Street) … 1,923 146 8,348 2,005 * Also included in Glasgow area.
such a form as to enable pensioners who are in receipt of all the allowances mentioned to be readily identified. I am, however, having the work of identification put in hand at once and will let the hon. and gallant Member know the result.
