HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1452-3
2. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Minister of Labour whether she can make a comparison as to the rise in real wages for the steel trade in Great Britain and the United States between 1913 and the latest available date for two comparable districts?


I regret that the statistical material available is insufficient to provide a satisfactory basis for such a comparison.

Commander BELLAIRS

Will the Minister obtain information of some kind to enable us to make some sort of comparison if I ask a question next Session?


I will do my best, but the tables really are not comparable.
