HC Deb 08 July 1966 vol 731 c115W
Mr. Cant

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will arrange for a further study of the distribution of earnings of manual workers, similar to the one carried out in October, 1960, and published in the April and June, 1961, issues of the Ministry of Labour Gazette.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

I do not propose to carry out a survey similar to that carried out in October, 1960. Distributions of the earnings of manual workers are now being produced annually from the results of the Family Expenditure Survey which is shortly to be expanded in size in order to provide more accurate information.
