HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 c2808W

asked the President of the Board of Trade how the average wages of miners over 21 years of age, which are stated to have been £3 1s. per week for the two weeks ending 16th December, 1922, in the case of those men who presented themselves for work on each day that the mines were open for work, compare with the average wages paid in the building, shipbuilding, and engineering and agricultural industries?


I have been asked to reply. The information at the disposal of my Department is insufficient to enable me to state the average earnings of adult workers of all classes in the building, shipbuilding, engineering and agricultural industries.
