Notes  (added by Chas Townley)
1 UI Books is believed to refer to Unemployment Insurance Books
2  The Report noted " The mushroom growth of Government Service is mainly accounted for by the transfer of RAF Accounts Section (employing 898), and Admiralty Stores (employing 444) to this region, making a total of 1342."
3 The number employed on construction is substantially greater than prewar. The report notes "As regards Building and Contracting, this rise is concentrated in 1941-42 under public works contracting, so that with the completion of existing building schemes, this labour will be withdrawn"
