53. Mr. C. Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what percentage of the working population of St. Helena are now unemployed.

Figures are only available in respect of able-bodied men between 18 and 60 years of age. Of these some six per cent. are registered for unemployment relief work.
