asked the Minister of Labour the number of knitted woollen glove workers in the Leicester area who were unemployed or on short time on 31st March, 1954, and on the 31st December, 1953, respectively.
Unemployment of knitted glove workers is not recorded separately in the statistical returns, but is included in the figures for the hosiery industry. It appears, however, that on
of those numbers, took place in the respective years.
I am having the figures extracted and will write to my hon. and gallant Friend.
