asked the Minister of Labour how many workers were registered as unemployed in the silk industry on 1st June, 1929, 1st December, 1929, and 1st March, 1930, respectively?

The number of insured persons, aged 16 to 64, classified as belonging to the silk and artificial silk industry group, recorded as unemployed in Great Britain at 27th May, 1929, was 6,255. As regards the corresponding figure for 25th November, 1929, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply to his question of 20th February. I regret that the figure for 24th February, 1930, is not yet available.
