HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 c290W
Mr. Russell Johnston

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will publish a table showing the average weekly wage in all grades in the Forestry Commission.

Mr. Ross

Average figures for all the miscellaneous grades employed by the Forestry Commission would not be meaningful. The basic weekly wages (which in most cases may be augmented by piece work) for forest workers are as follows:

Grade £ s. d.
Forest Worker 10 17 6
Forest Worker Grade II 11 3 0
Skilled Forest Worker 11 8 6
Ganger 12 4 6
Leading Ganger 12 9 6

These rates are at present under review.
