HC Deb 31 May 1968 vol 765 c291W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many women staff employed in the Refreshment Department at the House of Commons receive less than equal pay for equal work; and what are the differentials.

Mr. Maxwell

I have been asked to reply.

There are five female general assistants, and five male general assistants who also do portering. There are also three barmaids and five barmen. The male staff receive an average of 30s. a week more.
