The answer to the first part of the Question is 37,241. The answer to the second part involves a table of figures, which I will, with permission, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Following is the table:
|EUROPEAN VOLUNTEER WORKERS IN INDUSTRIES.|
|Domestic (hospitals, N.S.H.C. and other hostels, etc.)||3,211||2,895|
|Iron and Steel||709||—|
|Rayon and Silk||463||464|
Is not the staff wholly out of proportion to the number of people there, in view of the fact that a neighbouring industrial firm have plans to house 35 in their own hostel with a permanent staff of two, and two daily helps?
