§ Captain BAGLEY
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can state, approximately, in English money at present exchange rates, the rates of wages now prevailing in the coal-mining, iron and steel, textiles, glass, hosiery, or any other industries in the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and Japan?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
No statistical data are available on which an international comparison of the rates of wages at present prevailing in various industries 475W could legitimately be based. I therefore regret that I am unable to supply my hon. and gallant Friend with the information he desires.
