§ Mr. C. Smith
asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons in each of the principal categories comprised under the heading "Entertainment and Sport," at mid-1939 and in November, 1946; and, in particular, the number of professional musicians at the two dates.
§ Mr. Isaacs
The present industrial analysis of employment and, unemployment is based on a system of classification according to the business of the employer, which divides industry and the various services into ire) separate groups, one of which includes all kinds of entertainment and sport. Within each of these groups all workpeople have the same classification and code letters. Accordingly it is not possible to furnish statistics giving the numbers employed in individual occupations or within any other sub-division of a particular group.
