HC Deb 07 February 1972 vol 830 c283W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the latest information available for average income per head in Wales as compared with the average for the United Kingdom and England, respectively.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

The following estimates relate to 1969–70, the latest year for which figures are available.

Average income
£ per head
United Kingdom 528
England 544
Wales 445

The figures are derived from the results of the (as yet unpublished) Survey of Personal Incomes for 1969–70, which excludes incomes below £330 per annum.

The home population figures used relate to mid-1969, and include all persons living in the area whether or not they have an income.
