§ Mr. McKay
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance (1) what is the percentage of wages paid as National Insurance contributions, including juveniles up to the £9 wage level, by insured persons; and what is the percentage paid by the employers;
(2) what is the percentage of wages contributed, in total, by the group whose 165W earnings are above £9 and up to £15 as contributions to National Insurance and to graduated pensions; and what percentages of wages are contributed by the employers.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
Neither the total amounts paid by way of contributions in respect of persons with earnings at particular levels, nor their total earnings, is known and the information requested is therefore not available.
