HC Deb 19 November 1953 vol 520 c192W
Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the Minister of Labour the number of shepherds in employment in the United Kingdom and in Scotland, respectively, each year since 1946.

Sir W. Monckton

I regret that annual statistics are not available. At the time of the 1951 Census of Population the number of shepherds in Great Britain was 10,600, of whom 6,300 were in Scotland.
