Employment in June. ) Agricultural Labourers were generally well employed during the month of June. In parts of Suffolk and Essex there was some slight irregularity of work in the latter part of the month, owing to wet weather. Haymaking had liaidly commenced in June in many districts as the crop was a backward one, and wet weather at the end of the month postponed harvest operations. There was, however, plenty of employment at hoeing roots and weeding, and a number of employers complain that it was not possible to get sufficient men for this purpose. Coal Mining.—Employment in June has con- tinued good. At collieries at which 458,056 workpeople were employed, the pits worked on au average 5.18 days per week in the four weeks ended June 23rd.
