HC Deb 25 October 1949 vol 468 cc1138-9
26. Mr. Rankin

asked the Minister of Labour if he will give the average weekly earnings for the last pay week in April, 1949, for the same Scottish industries as are provided on page 300 of the September issue of the "Ministry of Labour Gazette" for the United Kingdom.

Mr. Isaacs

These figures are not very readily available, but I will send the hon. Member information relating to the more important industries in the course of a few days.

Mr. Rankin

In view of the fact that all the material required to provide this survey for the United Kingdom ought also to be available for Scotland, if it is to be a true picture, will my right hon. Friend not try to give the information asked for in the Question?

Mr. Isaacs

That is exactly what I have said. I will get the information and send it to my hon. Friend.
