HC Deb 14 June 1951 vol 488 cc205-6W
67. Miss Hornsby-Smith

asked the Minister of Health what arrangements were made for the payment of enumerators employed on compiling the census; and what is the period of delay between completion of their duties and the payment of their total remuneration.

Mr. Marquand

The payment is made in two instalments. A basic allowance of £6 was paid to the enumerator when he handed the completed forms of return to the local Census officer in April: the balance (ranging in most cases from £2 to £5) comprises allowances which will vary in each of the 50,000 enumeration districts and is payable when the claims have been verified centrally. I am informed that some of these claims have already been paid, and that the remainder should be settled within the next four weeks.

75. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Health if he can yet make a statement on the provisional figures arrived at from the recent census in England and Wales.

Mr. Marquand

The provisional figures for England and for Wales and for each county, each borough and each urban and rural district will appear in the Registrar General's preliminary report, which will shortly be laid before both Houses of Parliament as required by statute.
