asked the Minister of Labour the actual number of males and females, separately, gainfully employed in this country in 1911 and 1921, respectively; and the approximate number in 1929?

At the Census of 1911 the persons enumerated as gainfully occupied in Great Britain numbered 12,927,422 males and 5,423,944 females. The corresponding numbers at the Census of 1921 were 13,655,895 males and 5,701,424 females. I regret that figures for 1929 are not available.
