§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Minister of Labour what is the estimated gross wages per week of seamen including their free food, duty free tobacco and drink, and other side benefits; and by how much these have risen in the last five years.
§ Mrs. Shirley Williams
For rates of pay in recent years I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Truro (Mr. Geoffrey Wilson) on 17th June. I cannot give estimates of the value of benefits in kind.
