HC Deb 17 February 1949 vol 461 cc182-3W
27. Mr. Edward Evans

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the average values in cash and in kind, giving the highest and lowest figures, of the emoluments of tenants and managers of State-controlled licensed premises in the Carlisle district.

Mr. Ede

The cash wages of managers of public houses in the Carlisle State management district range from £5 to £7 15s., the average being about £5 13s. In addition, the managers receive free living premises, fuel and light, the value of which is assessed by the appropriate required to assist in the work of the Catering Wages Board at a flat rate of 25s. Where the manager's wife is establishment—and in the Carlisle district this applies in most cases—she receives 30s. a week, irrespective of the number of hours worked.
