48. Mr. C. Hughes

asked the Minister of Labour if he will give the figures of the insured working population, as a percentage of the total population, in each of the six North Wales counties, in Wales, and in the United Kingdom, respectively.

My information relates to insured employees, and does not include employers and self-employed. At mid-1959 the proportions of these in the total population were: Anglesey, 23 per cent.; Caernarvonshire, 30 per cent.; Denbighshire, 33 per cent.; Flintshire, 32 per cent.; Merionethshire, 24 per cent.; Montgomeryshire, 27 per cent.; Wales, 36 per cent. and the United Kingdom, 43 per cent.
